§ 39. Mr. Robert Atkins
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proportion of the total housing stock in Great Britain is unfit to live in or in a serious state of disrepair.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
Estimates derived from the English house condition survey indicate that in 1976 4.6 per cent. of the housing stock in England was unfit for human habitation, and that a further 6.2 per cent. of dwellings required substantial repairs to bring them up to a reasonable standard.
