HC Deb 27 March 1985 vol 76 c230W
Mr. Nicholson

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many housing estates or groups of houses have been modernised in the constituency of Newry and Armagh since 1976; and if he will list them.

Mr. Chris Patten

This is a matter for the chairman of the Housing Executive, who has advised me that records are not available in the form requested for the period prior to the regionalisation of the Housing Executive's operations in 1980. Since then general modernisation schemes have been carried out to 323 dwellings as follows:

Location Number of dwellings
Rural cottages in County Armagh 65
Mournview Park, Tandragee 19
Camlough Park, Bessbrook 34
St. Brigids Park, Newry 14
Navan Terrace/Crescent, Armagh 51
Montague Villas, Tandragee 4
Doctors Hill Millvale, Bessbrook 12
Camlough/Meigh/Forkhill 28
Callanbridge, Armagh 13
Crannard Gardens, Newry 12
Lisanally/Lonsdale, Armagh 71

In addition, individual elements of modernisation such as rewiring, insulation, re-roofing or heating improvement have been carried out to a further 4,707 dwellings in the area.
