§ Mr. Robert B. Jones
It is estimated that local authorities completed 27,700 dwellings in the five years up the end of 1994. They completed 460,900 dwellings in the five years from the end of 1974 to the end of 1979.
Housing associations are now the main providers of new social housing. Local authorities' primary housing tasks are the efficient management of their own stock of housing and enabling other organisations to provide new housing.
