HC Deb 21 December 1982 vol 34 cc465-6W
Mr. Hoosen

asked the Secretary of State for Wales by how much Brecknock borough council underspent its housing allocation in 1981 and is estimated to underspend in the current year in percentage terms (a) in relation to allocation and (b) in relation to allocation and receipts from sales of assets combined.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Provisional figures submitted by Brecknock borough council for the financial year 1981–82 indicate that 7 per cent. of its housing investment allocation and 53 per cent. of the combined housing investment allocation, plus all recipts from sales of assets, were unspent. It is not yet possible to give a reliable estimate of the likely level of expenditure for individual authorities in the current year.
