HC Deb 03 December 1984 vol 69 c61W
Mr. Dubs

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his assessment, based on the generalised needs index, of the requirement for the building of new homes in London over the next 10 years and of the number of renovations required over the same period.

Sir George Young

The generalised needs index is used to determine the financial allocation for London. It is for individual London authorities to determine how much to spend on new build and renovation, in the light of their assessment of local need.
