§ Mr. Foulkes
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many of the staff at his Department are directly involved with the arrangements for the disposal and management of radioactive waste; and how many of such staff have come to his Department from the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority.
§ Mr. Stanley
The system of local housing strategies and investment programmes—HIPS—was introduced for the year 1978–79. English authorities' bids for 1978–79 and 1979–80 are contained in their HIP submissions for those years. The 1980–81 HIP submission contains information about spending in the previous three years and an estimate of spending for 1979–80. Copies of those submissions, and of the cash allocation made to individual authorities, have been placed in the Library of the House.
