HC Deb 11 July 1988 vol 137 c45W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his policy on the mixed funding of housing association rehabilitation schemes; and what account he has taken of the effects of such a policy on the level of rents.

Mrs. Roe

Housing association rehabilitation schemes are eligible for mixed funding in the same way as other schemes. We expect associations to provide accommodation at rents within the reach of people in low-paid employment, and this should be possible within the financial regime we have established.
