§ Mr. Mulley
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what contribution his Department proposes to make to the national week of action against dampness.
§ Sir George Young
My Department provides assistance to individuals and local authorities to help them alleviate the problems of dampness in housing, for example, through home improvement policies, the homes insulation scheme, general housing subsidies and the building research programme. The Department is pursuing these policies not only during the national week of action against dampness, but throughout the year.
