HC Deb 23 December 1976 vol 923 c258W
Mr. MacGregor

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what would be the cost of undertaking a national housing survey along the lines of the questionnaire contained in the small pilot survey in South Norfolk referred to in the Written Answer on Monday 15th November 1976 to the hon. Member for Norfolk, South; and whether he now intends to go ahead with a national survey.

Mr. Armstrong

The estimated cost of a short interview based housing survey addressed to approximately 10 per cent. of all households in England is £6½ million. There are no present proposals to mount such a national survey.
