HC Deb 23 November 1971 vol 826 c346W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his estimate of the number of furnished and unfurnished lettings in the Central London area; and what were the comparable figures two years ago and three years ago.

Mr. Channon

Table 9 on page 48 of the Greater London volume of the 1966 Sample Census states that there were 748,000 unfurnished households in Greater London, of which 416,000 were in Inner London. The number of furnished households is given as 225,000, of which 145,000 were in Inner London. The Census report discusses why these figures may be subject to error. More recent estimates are not at present available.
