HC Deb 22 May 1985 vol 79 cc435-6W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many tenants exchanged homes between (a) England and Scotland and (b) England and Wales in 1984.

Mr. Gow

I regret that this information is not available.

English local authorities report in their HIP returns the numbers of their dwellings which have been let during the year to 31 March through the national mobility scheme (and in London under the Greater London mobility scheme and the inter-borough nomination scheme), those let through the tenant exchange scheme, and any other dwellings let to tenants to other authorities under exchange agreements.

The information provided is not broken down according to the originating area, nor do authorities provide information on numbers of tenants who have left their stock under exchange arrangements.
