HC Deb 28 January 1985 vol 72 cc68-9W
Mr. John David Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when the Northern Ireland Housing Executive commenced its examination of the options for dealing with its stock of Orlit dwellings at (a) Comber and (b) Donaghadee.

Mr. Chris Patten

I am advised by the chairman of the Northern Ireland Housing Executive that while the future of Orlit dwellings has been under consideration since potential defects in these properties were identified in 1983, it was not possible to consider specific proposals for dealing with the Orlits at Comber and Donaghadee until December 1984 when the final results of technical assessments carried out by the Housing Executive were confirmed.
