§ Mr. Chris Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will indicate, for all housing associations and co-operatives carrying out approved development work within the London borough of Islington, what block 2 tender approvals have been issued and for which schemes for financial year 1989–90, and for how many units of accommodation in each case; and what criteria have been used in reaching decisions about which projects to select for such tender approval.
§ Mr. Trippier
This information is not held by the Department. The Housing Corporation is responsible for allocating its capital programme to individual housing associations and schemes within the broad framework agreed annually by my right hon. Friend. I have, therefore, asked the Housing Corporation to reply to the hon. Member direct.
