§ 3. Mr. Hunt
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will allow Bromley Council to advance an additional £160,000 under its home loans scheme, in view of the fact that this commitment had already been entered into before the Government's latest reduction in the council's quota.
§ The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (Mr. James MacColl)
An additional quota to meet these commitments was given to Bromley Council on 21st November.
§ Mr. Hunt
That Answer is welcome as far as it goes, but will the Minister please always bear in mind that high property values in areas like Bromley mean that those of modest incomes must look to the council for loans to help them with house purchase; and, therefore, any restrictions he imposes in that respect strike very hard at young couples in particular in my constituency?
