HC Deb 31 March 1971 vol 814 c362W
58. Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the total number of houses built in the Yorkshire and Humberside region between 1965 and 1970 and the yearly average number constructed in that region; and what is the number of houses currently under construction.

Mr. Channon

205,469 dwellings were completed in the region during the six years 1965 to 1970 inclusive, an annual average of 34,245. At the end of 1970 25,290 dwellings were under construction. More recent figures are not yet available because returns were delayed by the postal strike.
