§ Sir George Young
Liverpool city council has reported a total of about 10,000 improvement grants from April 1974 to September 1983. My Department does not collect information on applications which are outstanding and I suggest that the hon. Member contacts the council for this figure.
The council's estimates of the numbers of unfit dwellings and of fit dwellings lacking basic amenities at April 1983 are included in its housing investment programme return which is available in the Library.
