§ Sir Raymond Gower
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what proportion of occupiers of dwellings in Wales were owner-occupiers at the latest convenient date; and how this compares with the proportion of owner-occupiers in 1972 and 1962, respectively.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
In December 1981, 60.6 per cent. of dwellings in Wales were owner-occupied. Information for 1962 is not available, but the comparable figures from the 1971 and 1961 censuses of population are 55.5 per cent. and 48.3 per cent., respectively.
