HC Deb 06 July 1983 vol 45 c112W
23. Mr. Sims

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what estimate he has made of the number of applications made under the new do-it-yourself shared-ownership scheme.

Mr. Gow

The total number of sales approved by the Housing Corporation between 24 January, when the scheme was launched, and the end of May is 416. However, the Housing Corporation estimates that about 5,500 applicants have been accepted by participating housing associations for do-it-yourself shared-ownership in the first two months of this financial year.
