HC Deb 05 July 1993 vol 228 c40W
15. Mr. David Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what representations he has received about the proportion of pensioners who are owner-occupiers and have paid off their mortgages.

Mr. Hague

Over half of all pensioners now own their own home—of these, 94 per cent. own their homes outright with no mortgage commitments.
