HC Deb 14 May 1985 vol 79 cc96-7W
Mr. Clifford Forsythe

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many homes administered by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive have been reported as suffering from dampness; and what methods are used to ascertain whether this dampness is attributable to bad design, condensation or disrepair.

Mr. Chris Patten

This is a matter for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, but I understand from the chairman that the information is not readily available. I shall reply to the hon. Gentleman as soon as possible.
