To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish a table in the Official Report, showing (a) the number of local authority-owned properties sold to tenants under the right-to-buy legislation and (b) that figure as a percentage of the total number of properties owned by each authority, for (i) Greater London, (ii) metropolitan areas outside London, (iii) English non-metropolitan areas and (iv) English local authority areas, broken down by (1) one-bedroom dwellings, (2) two-bedroom dwellings, (3) three-bedroom dwellings and (4) four or more bedroom dwellings.

Information on the number of bedrooms in the dwellings sold by local authorities is not available centrally. The total right-to-buy sales up to June 1987 reported by each authority 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).
