asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will provide estimated figures for 1980–81 for each heading which appears in the 1977 edition of "Housing Policy", technical volume II, table V.1 (assistance received by households in the main tenure through subsidies and tax relief); if he will break down each of the figures between (a) households where the head is a pensioner and (b) others; and if he will state the number of mortgages in each age group.

Planned totals of subsidy in 1980–81 were published in table 2·6 of "The Government's Expenditure Plans 1980–81 to 1983–84" (Cmnd 7841). A subdivision between pensioner households and other households cannot be made. Tax relief in 1980–81 cannot be estimated because it will depend on mortgage interest rates over the course of the year.
