§ Mr. Sainsbury
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he proposes to publish a circular to update Circular 82/69 on "Housing Standards and Costs: Accommodation Specially Designed for Old People".
§ Mr. Armstrong
We intend soon to consult the local authority associations preparatory to issuing a circular of guidance on the housing needs of old people, including those with special housing needs. We intend that the circular should cover the question of standards.
