§ Mr. Wm. Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many individual grants contracts on the improvement of private houses, rural cottages and other Northern Ireland Housing Executive dwellings have been delayed as a result of the freeze on public expenditure in Northern Ireland.
§ Mr. Goodhart
I understand that 402 grant applications and eight contracts for improvement of Housing Executive dwellings have been delayed as a result of the temporary standstill on new commitments announced by my right hon. Friend.
