Right to Buy sales are not available by constituency but are published by local authority in Table 685 here https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-social-housing-sales. Figures for South Yorkshire and England can also be found in Table 685. It should be noted that these are local authority sales and do not include sales through private registered providers (also known as housing associations).
