To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many applicants there are on the waiting list for homes in Newtownards; how many are categorised as primary cases; how many homes are presently under construction in Newtownards; and how many new homes will be commenced in 1992 in Newtownards.

This is a matter for the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, whose chief executive has advised that at 31 December there were 856 applicants on the executive's waiting list for the Ards borough council area, of whom 131 were in the priority category. Separate information for the town of Newtownards is not available. There are 66 Housing Executive dwellings under construction in Newtownards and the executive proposes to start building 62 new houses in the town in 1992–93.
