asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will set out in a single table the housing improvement programme allocations for the London boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Southwark and Newham, respectively, for each of the years 1980–81 to 1987–88, together with their equivalent in 1987 prices, and their respective index on the base of 1980–81.
For Southwark and Tower Hamlets I refer the hon. Member to the answers given, respectively, to the hon. Member for Southwark and Bermondsey (Mr. Hughes) on 17 March, at column 434, and to the right hon. Member for Bethnal Green and Stepney (Mr. Shore) on 23 February, at columns 90–91. The information requested for Newham is given in the following table, together with corresponding information about the authority's capital expenditure on housing. The latter reflects the use that it has been able to make of the various sources of capital spending power available to it including, since 1981–82, its receipts from the sale of assets.
