asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many Airey houses there are in the United Kingdom; and how many there are in each housing authority.
It is estimated that approximately 26,000 Airey houses were built in England and Wales. As far as is known none were built elsewhere in the United Kingdom. In May this year local authorities were asked to submit returns to the Building Research Establishment showing the number of Airey houses in their areas. I have placed in the Library figures for those authorities in England and Wales whose returns had been received and analysed by 23 November.
