§ Mr. Jessel
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many prefabricated houses are now occupied in Greater London in the ownership of each local authority; in which years they were erected; for how long they were intended to last; and how many still remain suitable for living in.
§ Mr. Freeson
Local authorities in London own the following numbers of such dwellings in use in December 1975:
Greater London Council 457 London Boroughs Barnet 7 Bexley 12 Camden 87 Greenwich 20 Hammersmith 76 Haringey 52 Kensington and Chelsea 46 Lambeth 223 Lewisham 17 Newham 467 Richmond 1 Southwark 259 Tower Hamlets 2 Waltham Forest 21 Wandsworth 48
These dwellings were erected between 1944 and 1947 with an expected life of at least 10 years; I have no information about their state of fitness.
