§ Mr. Craigen
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will (a) show the numbers of new houses started by housing associations in each district in each year from 31 March 1979 to 31 March 1984 and (b) indicate how many of these houses were sheltered houses for the elderly and disabled.
§ Mr. Ancram
The numbers of new houses started are set out in the table. A breakdown into user type is not available centrally but it is estimated that over half are sheltered housing.
