§ 20. Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he plans to take to help local authorities which have no more land available for building new houses.
§ Mr. Macfarlane
My Department issued advice on the supply of land for housing last July, in circular 15/84. The circular emphasises the role of structure and local plans in making provision for future housing requirements. It stresses the need to make full use of urban sites and to recycle urban land.
