36. Mr. Alan Lee Williams
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will state the number of houses under construction in the Greater London area on 30th June, 1967; and what are the comparable figures for 1964, 1965 and 1966.
§ Mr. Mellish
Public and private sector dwellings under construction in the Greater London area on 30th June, 1967, numbered 68,006. Precisely comparable figures are not available for previous years because from the beginning of 1967 the Greater London Council changed its method of recording dwellings started. It is estimated that comparable figures at 30th June, 1964, 1965 and 1966 would be 47,000, 54,600 and 55,400 respectively.
