§ Sir George Young
The most recent information is from the housing trailer to the 1991 "Labour Force Survey". It shows that in England lone parents with dependent children formed 12 per cent. of all households renting from a local authority and 10 per cent. of all households renting from a housing association.
This and other results of the survey are published in "Housing in England: Housing Trailers to the 1988 and 1991 Labour Force Surveys" (table 2.3), available from the House of Commons Library.
Information available from the National Federation of Housing Association's CORE system shows that single parents accounted for 21 per cent. of new lettings by housing associations in 1992–93.
