HC Deb 25 June 1986 vol 100 c223W
34. Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will now seek resources to effect long-term repairs to the public and private housing stocks.

Sir George Young

I look forward to a greatly increased involvement by the private sector in solving the present problems of disrepair in public housing. The private sector already has the predominant role in dealing with disrepair in private housing. Levels of public expenditure for 1987–88 will be decided and announced in the usual way.
