HC Deb 15 July 1997 vol 298 c127W
Mr. Hunter

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what proportion of new houses he proposes should be built on redeveloped urban sites. [8123]

Mr. Raynsford

The current target is to build half of all new homes on reused sites. The Green Paper on Household Growth last year sought views on an aspirational target of 60 per cent. We are considering all the responses received in helping us decide how the issues surrounding household growth, including this one, should be taken forward.
