HC Deb 13 March 2003 vol 401 c422W
Mrs. Calton

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how small local schemes will be funded following the creation of the single housing pot, with particular reference to schemes outside the areas earmarked for housing expansion or housing market renewals. [101831]

Mr. McNulty

Local housing authorities and housing associations will continue to invest in improving existing stock or increasing the supply of affordable housing in accordance with priorities identified in local housing strategies. Under the new single regional housing pot the resources provided by central Government to support this housing investment will increasingly be directed to areas or types of expenditure identified as priorities in regional housing strategies.
