HC Deb 21 January 1998 vol 304 c591W
25. Mr. Martyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the number of home starts for Wales in 1998–99. [21987]

Mr. Win Griffiths

I estimate that there will be around 9,300 starts in 1998–99. The recently announced spending plans for Tai Cymru will allow 2,300 starts and this will be supplemented by a further 50 housing association starts funded by local authorities under the capital receipts initiative. In the private sector, work is expected to commence on more than 6,900 new homes.
