HC Deb 14 November 1979 vol 973 cc668-9W
Mr. Allan Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what measure he intends to take to further training for the housing service; and how much expenditure central Government are prepared to provide for these purposes.

Mr. Stanley

I have already had useful discussions with the Institute of Housing and the Local Government Training Board about improving housing training. I regard the financing of training for those working in local government to be essentially for the local authorities themselves.
