HC Deb 23 May 1980 vol 985 c432W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will take steps to apply the provisions of the Inner Urban Areas Act which equalise the costs of the building of industrial property on derelict land in inner cities to the construction of houses being built for sale.

Mr. Fox

The powers under the Act can be used only to assist industrial and commercial projects. There is no provision for cost equalisation grants.
