HC Deb 03 July 1964 vol 697 cc294-5W
Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he will publish in HANSARD a table of figures giving the quarterly percentage rise or fall since October, 1951, in the number of council houses completed, the number of private houses completed, the size and costs of council houses, and the repayment costs on borrowed capital by local authorities, taking as the basis October, 1951, equalling 100.

Mr. Corfield

Quarterly figures of the sizes and costs of local authority dwellings since October, 1951, cannot be given without devoting a great deal of work to re-examination of the tenders submitted.

As the hon. Member will be aware, the numbers of local authority and private enterprise house completions are published quarterly in the "Housing Return" and monthly in the "Housing Summary".
