HC Deb 20 December 1967 vol 756 c450W
Mr. Allason

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what are the numbers of households under-occupied within the definition of more rooms than persons per household, in Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Bristol. Nottingham, Hull, Bradford, Leicester, Stoke-on-Trent and Wolverhampton.

Mr. MacColl:

The following estimates of the number of households with more rooms than persons in April 1966, in the specified places, are based on results from the 1966 Sample Census. I do not regard this as a satisfactory test of under-occupation.

Number of households with more rooms than persons
Birmingham C.B. 267,000
Liverpool C.B. 162,000
Manchester C.B. 158,000
Leeds C.B. 145,000
Sheffield C.B. 144,000
Bristol C.B. 123,000
Nottingham C.B. 88,000
Hull C.B. 78,000
Bradford C.B. 81,000
Leicester C.B. 81,000
Stoke-on-Trent C.B. 75,000
Wolverhampton C.B. 68,000

Detailed information of this sort can be obtained from the County Reports of the 1966 Sample Census (H.M.S.O.).
