§ Mr. Peter Robinson
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will place in the Library a copy of the report by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive into the replacement of metal-framed windows and the fairness of the programme in the various parts of the Province.
§ Mr. Atkins
I am advised by the chairman of the Housing Executive that the executive is carrying out a survey into the extent of the replacement of metal windows over the last three years. The survey will also list the stock which still has metal windows. It is intended to provide a data base which will be kept updated as renovation schemes are completed and dwellings sold or demolished. Although this is an internal executive survey, I have asked the chairman to write to the hon. Gentleman with the results when the work is completed in a few weeks.
