asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the latest average price obtained from the sale of a local authority house.

The average price for all sales completed, both voluntarily and under the right to buy provisions in the Housing Act 1980, in England in April to December 1981 was £9,800 after discount.

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many applications to buy council houses under the right-to-buy legislation have been acknowledged by Peterborough city council at the latest available date; of these, how many have been valued and, of these, how many have been sold; how much revenue has accrued to the city council from these sales; and how much the council will receive if those houses which have been valued are sold.

For available information on Peterborough council's progress in implementing the right to buy I refer my hon. Friend to the written answer given by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State to my hon. Friend the Member for Paddington (Mr. Wheeler) on 6 April 1982.—[c. 321.] Information on capital receipts arising from the sale of council dwellings under the right to buy is not collected separately from the receipts arising from the sale of council dwellings generally.
