HC Deb 16 May 1990 vol 172 c429W
Mr. Stern

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many privately owned Woolaway houses, qualifying for assistance with repair, remain unrepaired(a) nationally and (b) in Bristol.

Mr. Chope

This information is not available in the form requested. We estimate that there are 1,007 owners of Woolaway houses in England and Wales eligible for assistance under the housing defects legislation. Of these, 291 have received assistance by way of repair, or have repairs under way. The equivalent figures for Bristol are 222 and 86, respectively. A further 53 Woolaway houses in Bristol have been repurchased, and all but 13 of the remaining 83 owners have now received offers of assistance from the council—67 by way of repair, and three by way of repurchase.
