HC Deb 14 July 1994 vol 246 cc766-7W
Ms Harman

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish a table setting out for each year between 1988–89 and 1993–94 the amount spent by his Department on housing-related subsidies and grants (a) including all expenditures related to housing benefit and (b) excluding all expenditures related to housing benefit; if, following the Treasury's summer economic forecast 1994, he will publish projections for each of the years from 1994–95 to 1996–97; and if he will make a statement.

Sir George Young

Information on housing subsidies and grants for the years requested has been published in the housing chapters of the DOE reports for 1992, 1993 and 1994. Figures in the later reports supersede those for earlier years.

No revisions have been made to the estimates as a result of the publication of the Treasury's summer economic forecast. Revised estimates will be made in due course as part of the current public expenditure survey.
