HC Deb 07 December 2000 vol 359 cc3-4W
Ms Rosie Winterton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when he plans to make an announcement about the distribution to local authorities of housing capital resources for 2001–02. [141391]

Mr. Raynsford

Housing capital allocations for 2001–02 have now been finalised and sent to local authorities. The total of these allocations and the resources for capital works on the council housing stock to be distributed through the new Major Repairs Allowance amount to around £2.6 billion, an increase of about a quarter on the current year. I am arranging for a table giving details of authorities' allocations to be placed in the Libraries of the House. The table also shows the performance band in which each authority has been placed.
