Mr. Stanley

The Housing Corporation's approved development programme for 1982–83 in England includes a block 2 provision—expenditure on schemes receiving tender approval in the year—of £115 million. The corporation believes that this level of provision should be sufficient to allow housing association schemes in the pipeline to proceed to tender during the year. The corporation has, however, invited any associations which regard their block 2 allocations as inadequate to discuss the problem with the corporation's regional offices.
