To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many (a) local authority-owned homes and (b) homes owned by other social landlords there were in (i) Birmingham, (ii) the West Midlands and (iii) England in (A) 1980, (B)
1990, (C) 1995, (D) 2000, (E) 2005 and (F) the most recent year for which figures are available. 
Mr. Ian Austin: Information on the number of council-owned dwellings as at 1 April each year is supplied by local authorities on the annual Housing Strategy Statistical Appendix (HSSA) returns and is published annually from 1994 to 2008 on the Communities and Local Government website in Table 116:
Information on the number of registered social landlord (RSL) owned dwellings as at 31 March each year is collected by the Tenants Services Authority and is published annually from 1997 to 2008 on the Communities and Local Government website in Table 115:
|Number of dwellings owned( 1)|
|Birmingham||West Midlands( 3)||England( 3)|
|(1) Council-owned dwellings figures for 1980 and 1990 have been rounded to the nearest thousand. All other figures have been rounded to the nearest hundred.|
(2) Local authorities count the number of dwellings they own that are situated within their administrative boundary.
(3) Figures for the west midlands and England totals include estimated values for missing data.
(4) Figures for 1990 include bedspaces and shared ownership units.
(5) The number of dwellings for 2000, 2005 and 2008 includes general needs social housing rental stock, supported housing stock and housing stock for older people.
(6) Figures for 2005 and 2008 also include bedspaces. From 2005 some general needs stock was reclassified as supported stock. This may have resulted in some of the housing stock for older people being counted as bed spaces rather than dwellings which may have increased the dwelling count.
(7) Data are not available.
For council-owned stock: Housing Strategy Statistical Appendix (2000, 2005, 2008), Housing Investment Programme (1980, 1990, 1995).
For RSL/HA owned stock: Regulatory and Statistical Return (2000, 2005, 2008), Housing Association Annual Return (Statistics) (1990, 1995)
