HC Deb 15 November 1982 vol 32 c75W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the many problems confronting local authorities such as the London borough of Newham, he will make larger grants more easily available to such councils for housing improvements in both the public and private sectors.

Sir George Young

I assume the hon. Member is referring to the capital resources available to local authorities for improvement, and refer him to the reply given by my right hon. Friend to my hon. Friend the Member for Reading, North (Mr. Durant) on 27 October.—[Vol. 9, c.455.]
