HC Deb 18 July 1985 vol 83 cc209-10W
Mr. Dixon

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the latest estimate of the money required by local authorities in England and Wales to bring their housing stock up to decent standards.

Sir George Young

On 11 April my Department launched an inquiry into the condition of local authority housing stock, in order to establish how much local authorities estimate needs to be spent to put their stock into good condition. Their responses are now being analysed and first results should be available by the end of this month.
