HC Deb 07 July 1971 vol 820 c379W
86. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why the value of council house building orders for the first four months of this year fell by 18 per cent. compared with the same period last year, in view of the slight increase in the number of new council houses started.

Mr. Channon

There is no direct statistical correlation between the figures of orders placed and the figure of dwellings started.
