§ Mr. Wm. Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many Belfast corporation employees were wholly employed in the housing department during the last year in which they were responsible for housing; how many Housing Executive personnel are employed in the Belfast Council area today; and of these how many are wholly engaged in the provision, repair and administration of housing in the Belfast council area.
§ Mr. Goodhart
[pursuant to his reply, 13 November 1979, c. 551]: Information 474W about the number of employees employed by the former Belfast corporation is not available. The number and deployment of staff employed from time to time by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive is primarily the responsibility of the Executive itself, but I will ask the Executive to write to the hon. Member.
