HC Deb 11 July 1985 vol 82 c523W
18. Mr. Beggs

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if Government proposals to means test home improvement grants will be applied to Northern Ireland; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Chris Patten

The Government's proposals for restructuring of home improvement policy in Great Britain have not been finalised. When they are, I will consider them in relation to Northern Ireland's special housing needs.
