HC Deb 14 November 1979 vol 973 cc663-4W
Miss Boothroyd

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what will be the total sum allocated to Sandwell council for its housing programme for the current financial year; and whether, in view of it being a housing stress area, he will help families in need of council-owned properties by making additional finance available to the borough to assist with its house building, modernisation and repairs programme.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

Sandwell district council's housing capital allocation for 1979–80 is £18.11 million. The relative housing needs of each local authority were taken into account when the allocations were made.
