HC Deb 27 June 1979 vol 969 c232W
39. Mr. John Hunt

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he is taking, in conjunction with the local authorities and voluntary agencies, to encourage the provision of a higher proportion of sheltered housing for the elderly.

Mr. Stanley

Housing authorities and registered housing associations recognise the importance of suitable housing for elderly people.

I am considering, with my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Social Services and for Wales, what further steps might be taken.
