§ Mr. Robert B. Jones
Between October 1980 and September 1994 over 1.2 million tenants of local authorities and new towns in England purchased their homes under the right-to-buy legislation. Of these, some 3,500 sales were to local authority tenants in Stockport metropolitan borough council.
Information on housing association sales at local authority level is not available; sales for the country as a whole are estimated to be almost 27,000.
Data on subsequent sales by former tenants are not collected by the Department.
