§ Mr. Wakeham
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the approximate total number of local authority dwellings sold to their tenants in England and Wales in each of the last three years.
§ Mr. Armstrong
Local authorities in England and Wales reported selling, in 1975, 2,089 dwellings not built specifically for sale. Corresponding figures for earlier years appear in Table 41(a) of Housing and Construction Statistics, copies of which are available in the Library. Authorities' returns do not distinguish 273W between sitting tenants and other purchasers.
