§ Ms Estelle Morris
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish the criteria used by regional Department of the Environment offices for determining the allocation of the discretionary part of the housing investment programme allocation.
§ Sir George Young
A list of factors that Ministers will bear in mind in allocating the discretionary portion of housing investment programme—HIP—resources was published in May, as a component of the guidance to local authorities on the 1993 HIP round. I have placed a copy of this document in the Library.
