Mr. Litherland

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the figures of housing stock in the city of Manchester lacking at least one of the basic amenities; and what percentage of these properties is in the private sector.

Mr. Feoffrey Finsberg

According to Manchester city council's 1980 housing investment programme submission, the city has 14,761 dwellings which though fit, lack at least one basic amenity; and 95.8 per cent. of these are in the private sector.
