§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many housing association houses which are (a) rented houses and (b) co-ownership houses have been sold to sitting tenants or co-owners, respectively, giving the latest figures; and in each case what these figures represent as a percentage of (i) all rented houses and (ii) all co-ownership houses in England, belonging to housing associations.
§ Mr. Stanley
From 1 April 1981 to 30 September 1982, housing associations in England have sold 2,200 rented dwellings to sitting tenants and 14,000 dwellings to co-owners, equivalent to 0.5 per cent. of the associations' rented stock at 31 March 1981 and 35 per cent. of their co-ownership stock at that date.
