HC Deb 25 November 1992 vol 214 c672W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects the Ernst and Young management consultative study commissioned by his Department into the housing needs for the elderly to be completed and published; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Baldry

The Department anticipates that the study of the housing needs of elderly and disabled people currently being undertaken by Ernst and Young management consultants will be completed by the end of this year. It is expected that there will then be a series of reports covering different elements of the study with the first being published at the beginning of next year. The Department does not consider it necessary to make a statement at this stage but may do so when the first report is published.
