HC Deb 12 June 1995 vol 261 c409W
23. Mr. Hain

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what are the latest figures for home repossessions in Wales, West Glamorgan and Neath. [26054]

Mr. Gwilym Jones

Data on the number of homes repossessed are not available. Figures for mortgage possession actions taken in county courts are published by the Lord Chancellor's Department and not all orders result in repossession. The numbers of possession orders, including suspended orders, made during the first quarter of 1995 in Wales, West Glamorgan and Neath are 1,091, 174 and 82 respectively.
