§ Mr. Hawkins
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many dwellings let by local authorities in England and Wales were modernised during the past year; how many then remained unmodernised; and if he will give similar figures for the county of Norfolk.
§ Mr. Mellish
Local authorities in England and Wales received Exchequer contributions for the conversion and improvement of 32,368 of their own dwellings in 1964. Of these, 836 were in the county of Norfolk. My right hon. Friend estimates that over half a million houses belonging to local authorities remain unmodernised, but he cannot say how many of these are in Norfolk.
