§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he intends to make additional resources available to housing authorities to enable their housing stock to be brought up to higher standards following the meeting with the director general of the National Economic Development Council.
§ Sir George Young
One of the main conclusions reached in the NEDC's report was that better information was needed on the condition of the infrastructure. My Department has recently undertaken an inquiry into the condition of local authority housing stock. The results are now being analysed and will be taken into account in deciding the future levels of resources needed for public sector investment in housing.
