HC Deb 28 January 2003 vol 398 c793W
Mr. Chope

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will place in the Library a list of lower quartile prices of properties sold in each local authority area in each quarter of 2002. [94045]

Mr. McNulty

A table showing lower quartile property prices in each local authority area will be available in the Library from Wednesday 29 January. Figures will be provided for all four quarters of 2001 and for the first three quarters of 2002.

The figures are derived from the Land Registry dataset covering all residential property transactions—but excluding properties sold for less than £1,000 or more than £20 million.

Note that the figures for Q3 2002 are provisional only. Revised and final figures for Q3 2002 will be made available by end-February, which is when provisional figures for Q4 2002 will also be available.
