§ 15. Mr. Mallon
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what discussions he has had with the Northern Ireland Housing Executive about new housing programmes in the southern region.
§ Mr. Needham
None. As indicated in my reply to the hon. Member's question on 8 April, at columns 247–48, the distribution of resources to its regions within agreed objectives and priorities is a matter for the Housing Executive. However, I keep in close touch with the chairman on broader policy issues.
