asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many persons from Belfast have been given tenancies of Housing Executive houses in North Down in the past five years; whether these applicants were given priority over local people; how much money was given by way of removal or other grants; and how many tenants have moved away after payment of the grant.

Information in the form requested cannot be provided without disproportionate effort. Since June 1971, 995 families have been given grants to move to Bangor and Newtownards at a cost of approximately £120,000: 82 families left within 18 months of first moving.
