§ 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.
