§ Mr. McFall
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment further to his reply to the hon. Member for Nottingham, East (Mr. Knowles)Official Report, 14 December, column 629, how much of the funding made available to the Housing Corporation in the next three years he expects to be spent on housing co-ops, showing separately the amount he expects to be spent on tenant management co-ops and transferred ownership co-ops.
§ Mr. Trippier
This information is not held by the Department. The Housing Corporation is responsible for allocating its capital programme to housing associations, including housing co-operatives, within the broad framework agreed by my right hon. Friend. I have therefore asked the chairman of the Housing Corporation to respond to the hon. Member direct. The hon. Member may care to note that, with effect from April, the Housing Corporation's responsibilities will relate to associations in England only.
