§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate, in real terms, of the percentage decline in the 1984–85 allocation for housing as against the 1979–80 allocation.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Welsh housing capital allocation cash figures—local authority and Housing Corporation — adjusted for general inflation as measured by the gross domestic product deflator to a base of average 1981–82 prices, show a decline of some 25 per cent. in the 1984–85 allocation as against the 1979–80 allocation.
