The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1) how many people are on the A, B and C waiting lists in each of the seven housing districts in Belfast; and how this compares with the figures for the last four years;(2) what is the total waiting list for public sector housing in Belfast; how this compares with each of the previous four years; and what is the total number of applicants on the A, B and C list.

This is a matter for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive but I understand from the chairman that the information is as follows:
