HC Deb 22 May 1980 vol 985 c353W
40. Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the Government will complete their study of the role of building societies in the financing of house purchases.

Mr. Stanley

My right hon. Friend has received the preliminary views of the House Purchase Finance Review Group, which was asked to consider and review possible options on ways and means of securing an adequate and stable flow of funds in order to encourage a substantial growth in home ownership. He is now considering what further work might be carried out by the group.
