§ 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. MacColl
Last year Exchequer assistance was approved for the improvement of about 30,000 dwellings owned by local authorities in England and Wales. 743 of these were in Norfolk. 600,000 local authority dwellings in England and Wales are estimated to need improvement, but no separate estimate is available for Norfolk.
