Ms Oona King

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister (1) how many affordable housing units he estimates will be built in 2003–04 by(a) debt-free authorities with transitional local authority social housing class grant (LASHG) funding and (b) with-debt authorities with LASHG funding; [102309]

(2) what information his Department has collated on the number of new affordable housing units which were due to be built with funding by local authority social housing grant in 2003–04. [102321]

Mr. McNulty

In my statement of 5 February 2003 I outlined transitional arrangements for local authority social housing grant (LASHG). The number of affordable homes to be built in 2003–04 from LASHG transitional funding will not be known until after 30 June 2003, which is the deadline for both with-debt and debt-free authorities to submit new schemes for 2003–04 to the Housing Corporation.
