HC Deb 16 July 1980 vol 988 c602W
Mr. Latham

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will make a statement on the operation of the Homes Insulation Act 1978; and what is the Government's current policy regarding grant-aid for insulation of domestic lofts.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

We are continuing to promote loft insulation by providing grants under the homes insulation scheme which, with the additional help for the elderly on low incomes to be implemented very shortly, will amount to £16.7million in 1980–81.
