HC Deb 23 November 1983 vol 49 c213W
41. Mr. Barron

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many local housing authorities built no new houses in 1982–83; and how many authorities are planning to build no new houses in 1983–84.

Sir George Young

In the 1983 housing investment programme returns received from all English local housing authorities except the Isles of Scilly, 23 authorities did not expect completion in 1983–84 of dwellings for them to rent or to sell, and 30 reported no such completions in 1982–83.
