asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many precast concrete local authority houses there are in (i) Basildon, (ii) Essex and (iii) the United Kingdom; and how many have been sold under the legislation governing local authority house sales.

Information is not available in the form sought. However, my Department understands that the number of prefabricated concrete dwellings built before 1960 by local authorities and other public sector bodies in the Basildon district council area is 80, the number in Essex approximately 4,500, and the number in the United Kingdom as a whole some 170,000, of which 16,500 are now in private ownership.
