HC Deb 24 July 1978 vol 954 cc563-4W
Mr. Cartwright

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many local authorities have so far submitted proposals for thermal insulation of their existing housing stock during the current financial year; how many properties are involved; what is the estimated cost; and what proportion will be met by Government subsidy.

Mr. Armstrong

Authorities are not required to obtain prior departmental ap

support grant. Discretionary grants are also available under the Requisitioned Land and War Works Acts 1945 and, solely in respect of educational premises, under the Education Act 1944 as amended by the Local Government Act 1958.
