Statistics on Right to Buy sales are available at local authority level and can be found in Tables 691 (quarterly, from 2006/07) and 685 (annual, from 1998/99) at:

These statistics are not available by parliamentary constituency. It should also be noted that they do not include sales of social housing stock through Preserved Right to Buy made by Registered Providers (such as housing associations) as these data are not available at a local authority level.

Brigg and Goole constituency is made up of part of East Riding of Yorkshire (where there have been 554 Right to Buy sales between 2004/05 and 2013/14) and part of North Lincolnshire (where there were 366 Right to Buy sales between 2004/05 and 2006/07 when the unitary authority transferred its stock).
