HC Deb 20 May 1986 vol 98 c139W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, the hon. Member for Ealing, Acton (Sir G. Young) has anything to add to his statement to the House of 22 April, Official Report, column 222, on the Labour party's housing policy for Ealing; and if he will make a statement.

Sir George Young

In column 222 I referred to 21 lines of housing policy in Labour's manifesto in Ealing, based on 81 pages of documents which I had available at the time. I have subsequently discovered 10 pages of housing policy in a separate document, so the remark was inaccurate and I regret it.

While my remarks on the quantity of policy were inaccurate, my reservations about its quality remain unallayed.
