The number of social housing sales since 2012 is available in live table 678 https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-social-housing-sales

These are figures for sales of social housing in England only, figures on the sales of social housing in Northern Ireland are a matter for the devolved administration.

Our record on the provision of affordable housing is a strong one with over 357,000 affordable homes delivered since 2010. This included 257,000 homes for rent. Whilst 69,000 local authority homes have been sold since 2010, there have been 127,000 new homes provided for social rent during the same period.
