§ Mr. Peter Robinson
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many houses have been rehabilitated in east Belfast, south Belfast, north Belfast and west Belfast in the year 1981–82; and how many are projected for the next three years.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
These are matters for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive and housing associations, but I understand that the estimated number of houses to be rehabilitated during 1981–82 in Belfast is as follows:
NIHE Housing Associations East Belfast 77 31 South Belfast 63 84 North Belfast 146 151 West Belfast 165 1
In addition, some 1,280 house owners have applied for improvements grants.
I understand that in 1982–83 the Housing Executive hopes to rehabilitate 321 houses in east Belfast; 226 250W houses in south Belfast; 68 houses in north Belfast and 351 houses in west Belfast. Figures for subsequent years are not yet available.
