HC Deb 09 February 1981 vol 998 c252W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether district councils in Wales administering thermal insulation schemes for the elderly in need may use the labour provided by the Manpower Services Commission to lay such loft insulation in privately owned homes.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Under the Homes Insulation Scheme 1980 local authorities are limited to making grants towards the cost of labour and material involved in the installation of loft insulation for the elderly in need. They are not responsible for the carrying out of the work.
