asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will introduce a special exemption from the old dwellings age test for properties suffering from mundic block so that a repairs grant can be obtained; and if he will make a statement.

In the reply my hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Keighley (Mr. Cryer) on 10 November 1982—[Vol. 31, c. 538]—he announced that he was giving consideration to an alteration in the cut-off date for repairs grant for all dwellings. I do not consider that a change in the qualifying date for repairs grant specifically for houses built of mundic blocks would be appropriate.
