HC Deb 16 November 1992 vol 214 c54W
Ms. Gordon

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many properties sold to sitting tenants under the right-to-buy have been re-purchased by English local authorities under defective housing legislation.

Mr. Baldry

By the end of 1991–92 local authorities in England had repurchased some 13,200 dwellings under the housing defects legislation. It is expected that local authorities will repurchase a further 1,000 dwellings during 1992–93.
