Volume 475: debated on Thursday 8 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) how many households in England were on local authority waiting lists for social housing in 2007; (204499)

(2) what the average period of time a household spent on local authority waiting lists before obtaining social housing was in the latest period for which figures are available.

For information on the number of households on local authority waiting lists I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 19 March 2008, Official Report, columns 1198-99W.

Information on the average wait for households on local authority waiting lists is not collected centrally.
