§ Mr. Carter,
pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 15th November 1977; Vol. 939, c.205],gave the following information:
It is not possible to state exactly how many specially designed dwellings for persons confined to a wheelchair are available in Northern Ireland. So far as the public sector is concerned 28 specially-designed new wheelchair dwellings have been built by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive since March 1976 and a further 47 were under construction at 15th November 1977. Many of the 1,000 adaptations made to existing stock by the Housing Executive between June 1976 and June 1977 were designed to facilitate persons partly or wholly confined to a wheelchair. Similar information about private houses is not available.
