§ 47. Mr. Pavitt
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many houses have been sold to sitting tenants by the Ilford Borough Council since 1951; and what has been the average price paid per house.
§ Mr. Mellish
Complete annual figures are not available, but since 1945 the former Ilford Borough Council sold 1,306 council houses to sitting tenants. The houses were sold on terms laid down in general consents given in 1952 and 1960 and my right hon. Friend has no details of individual prices which would enable an average price to be calculated.
The new Redbridge London Borough Council, of which Ilford now forms part, have decided not to sell any houses now in their ownership.
