Mr. John D. Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what was the income from the sale of houses for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive in the borough of Ards for the years 1993–94 and 1992–93; and how much of this income was reinvested in the borough of Ards in each of those two years.
§ Mr. Tim Smith
This is a matter for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, but its chief executive has advised me that income from the house sales scheme in the borough of Ards was £1.335 million for 1992–93 and £1.398 million for 1993–94. The Housing Executive's investment in the borough of Ards on new build was £1.919 million in 1992–93 and £1.659 million in 1993–94.
