HC Deb 14 April 1967 vol 744 c256W
Dr. David Kerr

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many leasehold houses he estimates to have less than five years, between five and 20 years, between 20 and 50 years, and more than 50 years, respectively, still to run out of original leases of more than 21 years.

Mr. Willey

According to sample surveys in England and Wales in 1963 and 1964 somewhat under 100,000 owner-occupied leasehold houses have leases due to expire before the end of this century, some 120,000 are due to expire in the following 20 years, and about a million have unexpired terms of more than 50 years.
