§ 86. Mr. Costain
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his policy regarding local authorities building houses for direct sale to the public; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Julian Amery
I regard private enterprise as the most efficient medium for building houses for owner-occupation, but I would agree to a local authority building for sale where there is a demand for owner-occupation which cannot or is not being met by private builders.
