HC Deb 13 February 1991 vol 185 cc471-2W
Mr. Rooker

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on progress of his Department's estate action work at Wyrley Birch, Birmingham, and give an indication of expected date of completion.

Mr. Yeo

The Wyrley Birch estate action scheme was approved by the Department on 24 November 1989 and was scheduled for completion in 1991–92. The £45 million package of works involves nearly 300 flats and maisonettes, which will benefit from refurbishment works, new security measures including a concierge scheme and environmental works. We understand that the works, which are being undertaken by Birmingham city council, are progressing satisfactorily.
