§ 162. Mr. Alton
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the total housing stock for each housing authority in England and Wales; what is the total number of empty dwellings for each housing authority; and what was the number of council houses built or started in 1984 for each housing authority.
§ Sir George Young
Each English local authority's estimate of the total dwellings in its area at 1 April 1984 and the number which were vacant, are contained in its housing investment programme return: the figures for each authority are listed in cols Al5 and A75, respectively, of the "Print of data from form HIP1 (1984)" which is available in the Library. Reported figures of starts and completions of dwellings for the local authorities and for other owners during the first nine months of 1984, appear in "Local Housing Statistics" No. 72 which is also in the Library.
For information about housing in the Welsh authorities' areas, I refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.
