§ Mr. Alfred Morris
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will provide a current estimate of the numbers of sheltered housing units which exist in England; how many more units will be built in the years 1993–94 to 1994–95; and if he will provide details of how many of these units will be provided by(a) local authorities and (b) housing associations.
§ Mr. Baldry
Local authorities report numbers of their annual housing investment programme (HIP1) returns of their own sheltered dwellings, and estimates of those owned by housing associations, by other public sector organisations and in the private sector.
The estimated total of such dwellings in England at 1 April 1992 appears in column A2a5 of "1992 HIP1—Regional Grossing", a copy of which is in the Library.
The Department has no information about future provision.
