HC Deb 27 January 1993 vol 217 cc761-2W
30. Mr. Skinner

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the latest figures for house building in the public sector.

Mr. Baldry

It is provisionally estimated that housing associations completed 6,700 new dwellings in England during the three months from September to November 1992. Over the same period some 500 new dwellings were completed by English local authorities. The number of completions by housing associations is due to rise to 66,000 in the financial year 1992–93.
