To ask the Attorney-General, pursuant to his answer of 21 February, Official Report, columns 321–22, for what reason the number of mortgage possession orders made in Coventry court in 1991 exceeded the number of actions entered.

A greater number of orders made over actions entered is not necessarily an indication of error, since some of the orders will relate to actions entered during the previous year. However, the figures given in my answer to the hon. Member on 21 February were provisional and stated to be so. On checking the figures again, it has been established that the data given for orders made erroneously included rent actions. The figures have now been revised and the total number of actions entered and orders made, whilst still provisional, should now read 1,256 and 1,202 respectively.
