HC Deb 12 June 2000 vol 351 c489W
Helen Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how much each local authority spent in the most recent available year on Housing Benefit to tenants of Registered Social Landlords to which their housing stock has been transferred. [124878]

Angela Eagle

The information requested is not available. This is because the data local authorities provide on Housing Benefit spending do not enable us to distinguish between spending on tenants who live in stock that has been transferred and those who live in other stock owned by Registered Social Landlords.
