§ 68. Mr. McCrindle
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the condition of the housing stock.
§ Sir George Young
The 1981 English house condition survey showed that out of 18.1 million dwellings 1.1 million were unfit, 0.9 million lacked basic amenities and 1 million required repairs costing more than £7,000. A more up to date picture will be provided by the 1986 survey which starts this September.
