HC Deb 18 February 1985 vol 73 cc332-3W
Mr. Redmond

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what changes have taken place in the number of acres of derelict land in (a) south Yorkshire, (b) west Yorkshire, (c) Humberside and (d) north Yorkshire in the five years up to the latest date for which information is available.

Mr Macfarlane

Information in the form requested is only available from the derelict land surveys published by my Department. The last, in 1982, also contains details of the previous one in 1974. A copy of the 1982 survey is available in the Library of the House. The information on the areas requested is as follows:

Amount of derelict land (acres)
1974 1982 Difference 1974–82
Humberside 2,445 2,188 -257
North Yorkshire 96 1,964 1,868
South Yorkshire 3,866 2,742 -1,124
