§ Mr. Chris Smith
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he intends to publish the results of the survey commissioned by his Department of local authorities on houses in multiple occupation; whether he will place a copy in the Library; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir George Young
A summary of the results of the postal survey of local authorities in England and Wales about houses in multiple occupation was given on 20 February at a seminar held by the Institution of Environmental Health Officers. A full report on that survey will be published in May by HMSO, and a copy will be placed in the Library.
