§ Mr. Craigen
asked the Prime Minister what were the total costs involved in disbanding the National Building Agency; and what the running costs of the agency were during its last year of operation.
§ The Prime Minister
It is not possible to indicate the total net costs of closure of the National Building Agency since its winding up is not yet complete. So far the Secretary of State for the Environment has paid £1,267,540 in grant to help meet the agency's net liabilities. A liquidator was appointed on 19 February 1982. At that date the NBA's current expenditure in 1981–82 was £2,970,000.
