§ Mr. Malins
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has considered the recent report by SHAC, "The London Housing Aid Centre, Bed and Breakfast: Slum Housing of the Eighties", a copy of which has been sent to him; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir George Young
My right hon. Friend and. I have read this report with interest. Many of the proposals put forward will be for local authorities to consider. The proposals for Government action are in the main not new, but the views expressed in the report will nonetheless be taken into account. In particular any implications which the present level of public sector capital investment in housing may have for other fields of public expenditure will continue to be carefully considered.
