§ Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if the profits of the Land Commission from the sale of virgin land will be devoted solely to help the development of twilight areas or if they will be devoted as additional financial relief towards the rebuilding of slum clearance areas.
§ Mr. Willey
No decisions have yet been made about the specific uses of which the Land Commission's profits will be put. My right hon. Friend hopes that when the Commission has built up its Land Acquisition and Management Fund it will be able to devote some of its resources to the redevelopment of twilight areas, as well as to other purposes, but he would not expect these to include purposes, such as the rebuilding of slum clearance areas, for which specific Exchequer subsidies are already provided.
