asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the housing investment programme allocations made to each London borough, metropolitan district and non-metropolitan district in each of the years from 1978–79 to 1987–88, expressed in constant 1987–88 prices.

A table listing the housing investment programme allocations made for all housing authorities in England for each of the years 1978–79 to 1987–88 at 1987–88 constant prices has been placed in the library.Since 1981–82 local authorities have been able to supplement their allocations by expenditure financed from capital receipts. Nationally, over half of local authorities' capital expenditure in 1987–88 is expected to be financed from capital receipts.

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the total of all housing investment programme bids for 1978–88 submitted by English housing authorities; and what were the comparable figures for each year since 1978–79.

In their housing investment programme submissions local authorities set out their proposals for their total capital expenditure programme in the relevant year. The figures are therefore intended to cover not only expenditure financed from allocations, but the very considerable amount of expenditure financed from other sources. The totals of proposed programmes for the years 1978–79 to 1987–88 have been as follows:
