HC Deb 17 January 1983 vol 35 cc46-7W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is his latest estimate of the number of households in Wales.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

In the 1981 census of population, 990,000 households were enumerated with at least one person present on census night. In addition, 34,000 households were enumerated as absent; these are normally resident households with no members present on census night.
