HC Deb 19 July 1985 vol 83 c300W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the cost to public funds of discounts to tenants of charitable housing associations in 1984–85; and what is the likely cost in 1985–86.

Sir George Young

The cost to public funds of the home-ownership scheme in 1984–85 was £3.45 million out of an allocation of £10 million. It is too early to give a precise estimate of the costs of the scheme in 1985–86. Provision for the year is £17 million, to which will be added the underspend on the scheme last year.
