HC Deb 23 November 1983 vol 49 c209W
21. Mr. Murphy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the rate of disposal of new town assets to the private sector.

Sir George Young

I am satisfied with progress with the disposal of assets by new towns to the private sector. Since May 1979 they have sold nearly £400 million worth of industrial and commercial assets and over 15,300 houses and flats.
