HC Deb 23 November 1983 vol 49 c216W
61. Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will introduce legislation to provide for electrical improvement grants.

Sir George Young

Electrical works already qualify for grant under certain circumstances, at the discretion of the local authority concerned. The extent to which the home improvement grant system should cover particular types of works is kept under review, but there are no proposals at present to alter the existing arrangements as regards electrical installations.
