§ Mr. Tony Banks
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what method was used to assess repair costs in the English house condition survey of 1981; and which body was responsible for devising the methodology.
§ Sir George Young
The method used is described on page 36 of housing survey report No. 12 published by my Department. It selected and adapted a methodology that was devised by the GLC for the 1979 Greater London house condition survey, carried out jointly with the Department.
