To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many homeowners in Cardiganshire have suffered repossession of their homes due to mortgage arrears in each year since 1980 until the latest year for which figures are available; and if he will make a statement.

I have been asked to reply.The figures for the number of repossessions are not collected. The only information available on mortgage possessions is the number of actions entered and orders made in each county court. Two county courts deal with Cardiganshire cases—Aberystwyth and Carmarthen—and information is available, as set out below, for Aberystwyth county court for each year from 1987 to 1990 and the first 11 months of 1991.Not all these orders will have resulted in the issue and execution of warrants of possession. Carmarthen county court deals with a wider area than just Cardiganshire and it is not possible to separate these cases.
