Mr. Bob Brown

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the number of houses started in the public and private sectors, respectively, in the 12 months ended 31st May, 1971, and the previous 12 months in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in Newburn Urban District Council area and in the Northern Region.

Mr. Amery

Statistics for May, 1971, are not yet available. The number of starts in the public and private sectors in the 11 month period from 1st June, 1970, and the corresponding figures for 11 months from 1st June, 1969, for Newcastle-upon-Tyne County Borough, Newburn Urban District and the Northern Region are as follows:

for rent rebate and as to whether furnished tenants of such associations will be eligible.

Mr. Amery

I am still discussing the reform of housing finance with representatives of the voluntary housing movement.
