Miss Maynard

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what information he has as to how many young people under 21 years are on local authority housing waiting lists.

Sir George Young

It is estimated from the national dwelling and housing survey that in England at the end of 1977 there were 84,000 heads of household under 25 on council house waiting lists. Information on the number of young people on waiting lists who were not heads of household is not available.
