Numbers of houses and flats owned by individual local authorities are published by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy in "Housing Statistics (Part 1)—Rents, Rebates and Allowances as at April 1976 ".Figures of sales of dwellings by individual local authorities are published annually in "Local Housing Statistics"; but local authorities are not required to distinguish between houses, flats and maisonettes in their returns to the Department.Copies of both publications are available in the House of Commons Library.
