To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many local authority houses were built in(a) Warrington, (b) Macclesfield, (c) Congleton, (d) Crewe and Nantwich, (e) Vale Royal and (f) Staffordshire Moorlands in (i) 1978 and (ii) 1988; and how many it is estimated will be built in these areas in 1989.

Mr. Trippier

Local authority housebuilding completions reported as taking place in these housing authorities in 1978 appear in "Local Housing Statistics", issue 49, a copy of which is available in the Library. Figures reported for 1988 are as follows:

Number of local authority housebuilding completions

Congleton 8
Crewe and Nantwich 8
Macclesfield 26
Vale Royal 57
Warrington 164
1 January to November only

The Department does not have estimates of 1989 housebuilding activity by local authorities.

Mr. Harry Greenway

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many(a) private sector houses and (b) public sector housing units there are currently on (i) Notting Hill housing trust-owned estates and (ii) other housing association estates; how many such units are proposed by these bodies in the next year; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Trippier

This information is not held by the Department, the Housing Corporation is responsible for monitoring, supervising and distributing funds to registered housing associations in England. I have, therefore, asked the Housing Corporation to supply to my hon. Friend direct information about existing and planned developments in his constituency involving the Notting Hill housing trust and other housing associations.
