§ Mr. Field
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish for the latest available financial year, and for the previous two financial years, the number of revenue deficit grant claims received from registered housing associations; if he will give the average value of claims and the average value of payments; if he will tabulate this information according to whether the housing associations had units of accommodation in management at the end of the year for which the claim was made in (a) 0–249, (b) 250–999, (c) 500–999, (d) 1,000–1,599, (e) 1,500–1,999, (f) 2,000–2,499, and (g) 2,500 plus; and if he will list the number of housing associations in each category.
§ Sir George Young
Details of the average value of revenue deficit grant claims received and an analysis of this information according to the number of units an association has in management could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
The remaining information requested is as follows:
Financial Year *Number of Claims Received Average Value of Payment (£) 1978–79 535 38,801 1979–80 574 36,400 1980–81 573 50,400 * includes claims for payment of grant on account prior to formal claim determination and claims subsequently rejected. These figures also include a small number of claims for management grant which has now been replaced by revenue deficit grant.
