HC Deb 08 July 1985 vol 82 cc333-4W
13. Mr. Anderson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what has been the actual percentage reduction in the net central Government expenditure on housebuilding in Wales between 1979–80 and the latest available date.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

It is not possible to answer the question in the form put by the hon. Gentlemen. Public sector housing is primarily the responsibility of local authorities and the Housing Corporation and it is for them to decide what proportion of their total resources to devote to house building.
