HC Deb 11 December 1984 vol 69 c402W
Mr. Robin Cook

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish in the Official Report figures showing the percentage of homes in Scotland that have a loft or have access to a loft, but which have no loft insulation, or which have loft insulation less than the 100 mm minimum included in all new properties; and if he will break the figures down into owner-occupied, local authority and other tenures.

Mr. Ancram

Estimates are available of loft insulation in dwellings in Scotland with access to the loft and are given in the following table:

All Homes per cent. Council Homes per cent.
Proportion of households with access to loft:—
a. Without loft insulation or not known 25 25
b. With loft insulation less than 100 mm thick 58 62
c. With loft insulation 100 mm or thicker 17 13
