To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate she has made of the number of private tenants in (a) Essex and (b) Castle Point in each of the last five years. (212093)

The following table respectively shows the number of private sector dwellings completed in Essex and Castle Point over period 2002-2007. These figures do not indicate the number of private sector tenants over that period, since it is not possible to estimate the number of tenants residing in a property at any one time.
