§ Q4. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Prime Minister, in view of the increased numbers of people likely to marry in the next few years due to demographic factors, what plans the Government have to increase the numbers of homes being built to meet likely demand.
§ The Prime Minister
On the latest available figures starts in the private sector last year showed a significant increase on those for the previous year. In the public sector, we are making an increase in real terms in the gross provision for local authority housing capital investment next year.
