§ Mr. Richard Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) what percentage of local authority dwellings built in the last 15 years in the Yorkshire and Humberside Region have required subsequent remedial work; and how many homes this percentage figure represents;
(2) what expenditure has been incurred to date by each respective district council in the Yorkshire and Humberside Region in carrying out remedial work on local authority dwellings built in the last 15 years; and what amount per dwelling these totals represent in each district.469W
§ Mr. Freeson
To try to provide this information would require the 26 district councils in the region to examine their own records and the records of their 140 predecessors for the past 15 years; I do not think it reasonable to ask them to do so.
