HC Deb 08 February 1995 vol 254 cc262-3W
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:

£ millions
Birmingham City Council 13.323
Manchester City Council 9.807
London Borough of Lambeth 6.356
London Borough of Hackney 5.789
London Borough of Southwark 5.319
London Borough of Islington 4.891
