HC Deb 17 January 1980 vol 976 c834W
Mr. Tilley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many one-parent families renting accommodation from local authorities are in a position to buy their own homes; and, of those who are able to buy, what is their average income and what proportion of it would be required to be spent on buying their home.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

There is insufficient information available to the Department to estimate the number of one-parent families who are in a position to purchase the homes they rent from local authorities.
