I thank my hon. Friend for a very helpful answer. Where the mortgagors have left because they have been intimidated, or whatever, there is no point in repossessing the property and trying to sell it. One is faced with the problem of getting rid of the property. Can the scheme be extended so that the building societies can be assisted by the Housing Executive in taking up these properties?
