§ 41. Mr. Barron
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many local housing authorities built no new houses in 1982–83; and how many authorities are planning to build no new houses in 1983–84.
§ Sir George Young
In the 1983 housing investment programme returns received from all English local housing authorities except the Isles of Scilly, 23 authorities did not expect completion in 1983–84 of dwellings for them to rent or to sell, and 30 reported no such completions in 1982–83.
