A series of regional housing inquiries will investigate housing need across the country, the Association of Metropolitan Authorities housing committee agreed today.

Evidence from the inquiries, which are being organised jointly with the Association of District Councils, will then be costed and published, forming the most comprehensive picture of housing shortages and disrepair ever. Total resources available for housing investment to local authorities and housing associations have been declining since 1989, the ADC and AMA say.

Paul Jenks, chair of the ADC's housing committee added:'These inquiries will go beyond the statistics to uncover locla evidence, which when costed and published, should provide the government with all the facts it needs on the case for urgent investment in regional housing.'

The first AMA/ADC inquiry will be in Salford on January 12, 1993 and will examine the case for housing investment in Cumbria, lancashire, Greter Manchester and Cheshire. The next will be in Bradford on Febraury 28.
