§ Mr. Townsend
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many GLC properties are awaiting modernisation and rehabilitation to current standards.
§ Mr. Kaufman
I understand from the GLC that out of a total of some 75,000 dwellings dating from before 1950, some 10,000 have already been modernised or are in process of modernisation. It is envisaged that most of the remainder will be modernised in due course, although the majority of them cannot be considered as high priority cases by general London standards.
