Is the Minister concluding this part of his speech about the selling of council dwellings without any mention of the Government's policy on council house building? He has placed great emphasis on the number of people who want to become owner-occupiers. What is the Government's policy towards those hundreds of thousands of people on waiting lists throughout the country who cannot become owner-occupiers and who desperately need rented accommodation which they will be able to get only from the public sector, if at all?
