asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any plans to bring forward measures to allow owners of houses in multiple occupation to apply for repair grants.

Special grants are already available, at the discretion of the local authority, towards repairs of houses in multiple occupation where the works are associated with the provision of standard amenities or means of escape from fire. I am now considering the results of consultation on the home improvement Green Paper which envisages assistance for this and other work.
