§ Mr. D. E. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is his assessment of the extent to which housing in Wales is overcrowded.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
There is no universally accepted definition of overcrowding, but a commonly accepted standard is that of households living at a density of more than one and a half persons per room. It is estimated that about ¼ per cent. of households in Wales fall into this category.
