HC Deb 14 January 1993 vol 216 c764W
Mr. George

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many new homes will be provided by Walsall metropolitan borough authority in 1993–94; what is the total provision from central funds which will be received by the authority in support of capital expenditure on housing; and what capital expenditure he expects the authority to incur next year.

Mr. Baldry

The level of local authority housing capital expenditure in Walsall in 1993–94 is a matter for the borough council to decide in the light of the available resources. The authority's proposed programme for housing capital expenditure in 1993–94, included in their housing investment programme—HIP—submission, indicates no expenditure on new housebuilding by the council. Walsall's HIP allocation for 1993–94 is £10,474,000.
