§ Ms. Coffey
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the average figure for metropolitan authorities of debt in relation to housing stock; and what is the figure for Stockport.
§ Mr. Baldry
No information is now collected by the Department on debt relating to housing stock. However, figures published by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy suggest that outstanding debt relating to housing at 31 March 1991 was £61 million for Stockport, or £210 per head of population, and £6.2 billion for all metropolitan districts, or around £560 per head.
