§ Mrs. Jeger
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much residential accommodation in London belonging to the Crown Commissioners has been empty for six months or more; and what action is being taken to bring these properties into housing use.
§ Mr. Joel Barnett
I am informed by the Crown Estate Commissioners that there are 41 such residential units. 22 of them are under offer to housing associations, local authorities or private persons, 13 are the subject of planning applications before the local planning authorities, three are awaiting conversion and three are uninhabitable.
