asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many houses in Wales in 1961 were classified as unfit for occupation; how many of these houses were demolished or reconditioned by 1964; and how many houses were classified as unfit for occupation in 1964 in Wales.

No survey was made in 1961 or 1964 of the number of unfit houses in Wales. The number of unfit houses was estimated in 1962 as about 30,000 and in 1965 as about 38,500. 11,230 unfit houses were closed or demolished from 1961 to 1964 inclusive.
