asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning the number of housing authorities who have submitted claims for a reduction of the annual contribution payable in respect of temporary houses because of high maintenance costs; what percentage of the claims have been granted; what is the number of temporary houses; what is the average sum per house; and what is the total sum involved.

Claims have been received from 80 authorities; 47 have been allowed and 12 are still under consideration; 12,439 houses are involved: the average per house is roughly £6 and the total annual sum £74,467.
