§ Mr. Thomas Cox
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the number of empty council properties in each of the 32 London boroughs.
§ Mr. Stanley
Estimates of vacant council dwellings are made by the boroughs themselves, and, for April 1979, are given in the housing strategy appraisal form (HIP1), copies of which are lodged in the Library. These estimates exclude dwellings owned by the Greater London Council.
