§ 50. Mr Beith
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many council houses have been insulated in Great Britain; what are the current annual completion figures for insulation of council houses; and whether he is satisfied that local authority insulation programmes are unaffected by public expenditure cuts.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
It is estimated that of the 4½ million or so council dwellings in Great Britain with accessible lofts, about one half have some loft insulation. Between July 1978 and June 1979 about 410,000 council houses were insulated in England and Wales. There have been no cuts in the provision for local authority insulation programmes.
