§ Mr. George Howarth
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list for each local authority, and by region in England since 1979–80, the total number of priority homeless acceptances where there was a child or pregnant adult, and the total number of two-bedroom or larger dwellings available to local authorities for new permanent secure tenants, excluding transfers, but including nominations to housing associations.
§ Mr. Yeo
I have placed in the Library a table showing the information derived from local authorities' annual housing investment programme returns for 1989–90 and 1990–91, the only years for which it has been collected. The total number of two-bedroom or larger dwellings available has been taken as the number let in each year and does not include any dwellings kept vacant for repairs or for other reasons.
