HC Deb 19 February 1981 vol 999 cc218-9W
Mr. Cook

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has any plans to extend the moratorium on house building by new town development corporations in Scotland beyond the end of this financial year.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

The moratorium on new construction, which all five corporations were asked to observe, was intended only to keep expenditure from the cash block of which they form a part within planned levels for 1980–81; allocations for 1981–82 will be announced in due course.
