asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the total value of Section 105 allocations for housing improvements and major repairs, by planning regions, in 1975–76 and 1976–77, at the level of prices quoted in the answer to the hon. Member for Hough-ton-le-Spring on 9th March 1977.

Following is the information:

The above figures include resources made available during each of these years under counter unemployment measures. Since my hon. friend's earlier question I have announced that an additional £25 million will be available in 1977–78; the regional distribution of this sum will be settled very shortly.
