HC Deb 17 December 1982 vol 34 c293W
Mr. Pendry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the latest figures for the number and proportion of (a) one-parent families and (b) two-parent families living in (i) private rented housing, (ii) local authority housing, (iii) owner-occupied housing with a mortgage, (iv) owner-occupied housing owned outright, (v) shared accommodation and (vi) housing association accommodation.

Sir George Young

The number of one-parent families in Greater Britain at the end of 1980 was 900,000 and the number of two-parent families 6.3 million. The latest available information on the tenure of one-parent and two-parent families is contained in table 2.19 of report on the general household survey for 1980, a copy of which is available in the Library.
