HC Deb 25 July 1979 vol 971 c252W
25. Mr. Dormand

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals he has for financial assistance to district councils which have taken responsibility for new town housing.

Mr. Stanley

Financial assistance is already available under arrangements agreed in January 1978. I am also pre pared to honour the previous Government's commitment to give some limited additional help towards remedial works on the housing transferred.
