HC Deb 10 February 1997 vol 290 c79W
Mr. Raynsford

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish for each local authority in England the total sums allocated for social housing investment in 1997–98 under(a) the Housing Corporation's approved development plan, (b) local authority basic credit approvals, (c) local authority specific capital grants, (d) estate action and (e) other programmes. [13788]

Mr. Curry

I have arranged for a table giving the data requested on authorities' approved development programme, housing investment programme and estate action allocations for 1997–98 to be placed in the Library. The table also includes provisional 1997–98 allocations for capital challenge for investment in authorities own stock, housing action trusts and the 1997–98 allocations from round 1 of the estates renewal challenge fund. Allocations for 1997–98 from the second round of the estates renewal challenge fund and under the cash incentives scheme have not yet been finalised.

Some of the resources allocated through the single regeneration budget challenge fund and city challenge will be used for investment in social housing but this element is not separately identified in the allocations made.
