HC Deb 05 April 1971 vol 815 c48W
104. Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what percentage of houses is owned by local authorities; and how this compares with the percentage on 30th June, 1970.

Mr. Amery

Local authorities in Great Britain are estimated to have owned 30.5 per cent. of dwellings at the end of December, 1970. No later estimate is readily available, nor has any estimate been made for June, 1970. The percentage in December, 1969 was 30.0.
