HC Deb 20 February 1997 vol 290 c674W
Mr. Jim Cunningham

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many people are currently on waiting lists for social housing in(a) London, (b) England and (c) Coventry. [16552]

Mr. Clappison

Local authorities in England report the number of households on their housing waiting lists at 1 April each year in their annual housing investment programme returns. The latest available figures relate to the position on 1 April 1996, and are given in the 1996 "HIP 1 All Items Print", a copy of which is in the Library.

Corresponding data are not collected centrally for housing associations, some of which do not operate waiting lists.

Forward to
