To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, pursuant to his answer of 8 December, if he will detail the number of council house and flat sales by each London borough in each 12-month period from 1 April 1982 to 31 March 1987; and if he will make a statement.
The number of sales reported by each authority in the financial years 1985–86 and 1986–87 appear in the table placed in the Library on 11 December in reply to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Stamford and Spalding (Mr. Davies). The corresponding table covering the earlier years was placed in the Library on 26 May, since then the 1984–85 figures for Brent and Tower Hamlets have been raised to, respectively, 246 and, right to buy sales only, 144.I regret that in my answer of 8 December at column
275, the total sales for Southwark was incorrect and should have been 1,545.
