HC Deb 25 March 1982 vol 20 c389W
Q24. Mr. Race

asked the Prime Minister if she will introduce emergency measures to increase the housing investment programme.

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.
