HC Deb 04 February 1985 vol 72 c419W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many applications have been made to his Department for the remunicipalisation of former council houses; how many such applications have been successful; how many have been refused; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Since we introduced the right-to-buy scheme on 3 October 1980, 10 applications to reacquire former council houses have been submitted to the Department. Of these four received consent; four were refused consent and two were subsequently withdrawn by the local authority concerned.
