§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
33,468 council dwellings were sold to sitting tenants in Wales between May 1979 and 30 September 1983. A further 1,588 dwellings were sold by the Cwmbran Development Corporation and the Development Board for Rural Wales. My right hon. Friend has now asked local authorities to ensure that all applications received by the end of September 1983 are processed to completion by 30 September 1984 and that all new applications are completed within four months of the right to buy being admitted.
