§ The Prime Minister
No. My right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer has already announced in his Budget Statement that an extra £100 million has been made available for expenditure on housing improvement and home insulation grants in Great Britain next year. Taken in conjunction with capital allocations already announced for 1982–83 local authorities in Great Britain will now have £3,126 million available for gross housing investment in that year, which represents 7 per cent. more in real terms than the provision for 1981–82, and nearly a third more in cash than the currently estimated outturn for that year.
