To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the housing market in Wales. 
§ Ruth Kelly
The Treasury monitors regional housing market developments, and from time to time reports on them. For example Box A4 in the 2002 pre-Budget report (CM 5664) discussed regional house price differentials. The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister's "House Price Index Statistical Release" (available at http://www.odpm.gov.uk pns//pnattach/20040004/7.pdf) includes regular reporting of regional housing market developments.
