HC Deb 01 December 1993 vol 233 cc543-4W
26. Mr. Robert Banks

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment which local authorities have sold off all of their council housing stock.

Sir George Young

The following 23 councils have transferred all or most of their housing stock to housing associations:

  • Breckland DC
  • Broadland DC
  • London Borough of Bromley
  • Chiltern DC
  • Christchurch BC
  • East Cambridgeshire DC
  • East Dorset DC
  • Hambleton DC
  • Medina BC
  • Mid Sussex DC
  • Newbury DC
  • North Bedfordshire DC
  • Rochester upon Medway City C
  • Ryedale DC
  • Sevenoaks DC
  • South Buckinghamshire DC
  • South Wight BC
  • Suffolk Coastal DC
  • Surrey Heath BC
  • Swale BC
  • Tonbridge and Mailing BC
  • Tunbridge Wells BC
  • West Dorset DC

A further eight councils on the 1993–94 disposals programme have won tenant support for transfer and are expected to submit applications for permission to transfer by March next year.

I am also pleased that the public expenditure provision for housing announced yesterday will enable the programme to be expanded in future. Fourteen authorities have applied for inclusion in next year's programme and I hope to announce the successful applicants in the next couple of weeks.
