HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 c80W
7. Mr. Anderson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the forecast underspend by Welsh local authorities on housing in the current financial year; and how this compares with the actual underspend in the last two financial years.

Mr. Alec Jones

The underspend in 1976–77 was £28.3 million. In 1977–78 allocations were underspent by £10.9 million. It is too early to predict the final outturn in 1978–79 but I expect a further significant improvement.
