§ 60. Mr. Dormand
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will provide estimates of the annual cost of council house repairs for each of the next five years.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
The estimated cost of repairing and maintaining council houses in England in 1978–79 was about £550 million. Future levels of expenditure depend on the decisions of individual local authorities, which cannot be predicted with certainty.
