§ Mr. Straw
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the total amount of housing subsidy paid in each of the years 1983–84 to 1986–87 in respect of housing schemes for which his Department's project control approval has been given and which have been financed by financial facilities negotiated by the authorities separate from borrowing under the authorities' housing investment programme allocations.
§ Mr. John Patten
This information is not available. Admissible costs for subsidy purposes relate to capital expenditure undertaken by an authority, irrespective of the methods used to finance that expenditure.
