HC Deb 30 January 1991 vol 184 cc539-40W
Mr. Meale

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many new local authority homes for rent he expects will be completed during 1990–91.

Mr. Yeo

Local authorities in England are expected to complete about 13,000 houses during 1990–91. Housing associations are becoming the main providers of additional subsidised housing for rent. Public funding for associations through the Housing Corporation will increase from £1.2 billion this year to over £2 billion by 1993–94. Together with their increased ability to draw in private funds, this will permit a sustained increase in output of subsidised housing by associations over the next few years.
