§ 13. Mr. Bradford
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will increase the allocation already announced for housing associations in Northern Ireland.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
I have increased the allocation to the voluntary housing movement by nearly 50 per cent. over the previous year's allocation to a total of £19 million for 1981–82.
I have done this because I attach great importance to the contribution which voluntary housing associations make, but I have no further money available at present.
