Mr. Robert Ainsworth
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, pursuant to his answer of 31 January,Official Report, columns 574–75, if he will list the contribution each of the 10 authorities receives from homelessness indicators in the SSA formula, in descending order.
§ Mr. Robert B. Jones
Homelessness is one of a large number of general indicators that are included within composite indices in the personal social services and all other services service blocks. It is the overall value of an index which is important in determining an authority's SSA and not the value of an individual indicator within an index. Subject to that qualification, the 10 authorities which have the highest contribution from homelessness indicators, and the amounts, are: 263W
