§ 16. Mr. Clifford Forsythe
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the average length of time taken by the Housing Executive to complete a category 3 repair.
§ Mr. Chris Patten
These are non-essential repairs not requiring immediate attention. They are grouped with similar requests and carried out as part of planned maintenance schemes. The chairman of the Northern Ireland Housing Executive has advised me that information on the average length of time for such repairs is not readily available.
