asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether it is
the Government's intention to have a moratorium on new local authority construction projects.
I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Minister for Local Government and Environmental Services to the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Sparkbrook (Mr. Hattersley) on 13 June. The Government will consider what, if any, action should be taken in the light of the revised expenditure plans from local authorities.
