For the record - affordable housing completions in #rdg historically


This is taken from the council's official documents

1997/98 136
1998/99 275
1998/99 73
1999/00 69
2000/01 55

During the 2000s

01/02 02/03 03/04 04/05 05/06 06/07 07/08 08/09 09/10 TOTAL
 173  149    302       360   311   180    302    294   184      2255

Apologies for the formatting.  I put this up for those wishing to check the figures.  Ludicrously tonight Cllr Willis claimed that there was no social housing built under a Labour government in Reading.

The correct figure is 2,963.

He also accused the Labour party of being bad at maths.

In fairness I suspect he simply doesn't know the definition of social housing.
