Housing Revenue Account

Volume 124: debated on Friday 18 December 1987

The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list in rank order the deficits or balances for the housing revenue account of each Welsh district for each of the last five years for which figures are available, together with the percentage of each council's housing revenue account which these figures represent.

Local authorities are prevented from recording a deficit on the housing revenue account (HRA) by schedule 14, part IV (paragraph 4) of the Housing Act 1985. However, contributions are made from the rate fund (RFC) to the HRA, primarily to prevent a shortfall between income and expenditure on the HRA. Details of these contributions are as follows:
