The hon. Gentleman has asked how many social houses were built. If we factor those figures in, the number is still considerably lower than that achieved during the 13 years of the previous Conservative Governments. Presumably, Mr Raynsford can give us chapter and verse about how successful the housing association sector is, an issue on which the Government in whom he served failed so lamentably.
