HC Deb 25 October 1984 vol 65 c707W
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.
