§ Mr. Bishop
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many three-bedroom council houses were sold in the last year; what was the average and total amount received from the sale; and what was the average price paid by local authorities for new three-bedroom houses in that period.
§ Mr. Channon
Local authorities and new towns in England and Wales sold 9,094 dwellings of all types in 1969. Separate figures for the price of three-bedroom houses are not available.
The estimated average total cost of new three-bedroom houses for which tenders were accepted by local authorities in 1969 was about £4,300.
