HC Deb 02 November 1994 vol 248 c1153W
Mr. Betts

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many homes were provided through the Housing Corporation in 1993–94; and how many he expects will be provided in 1994–95 and 1995–96.

Mr. Robert B. Jones

In 1993–94 the Housing Corporation provided 56,500 new lettings through its approved development programme. In estimates published in December 1993, the Housing Corporation indicates that on current plans it will be able to provide over 58,000 new lettings in 1994–95 and some 52,000 in 1995–96 through its ADP. Plans for 1995–96 and beyond are, of course, under consideration as part of the current public expenditure round.

In addition, 8,334 new lettings were provided in 1993–94 through the Housing Corporation funded by local authority housing association grant. The level of output from this programme in future years will depend on decisions taken by individual local authorities.
