To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) what estimate he has made, on the basis of the level of the housing association expenditure announced in the 1995 financial statement, of the number of housing association homes for rent which will be constructed in 1996–97; and what was his estimate of funding levels for 1996–97 on the basis of the 1992 financial statement; (2) if he will estimate the funding available for new rented housing association homes in 1996–97 if the expenditure levels in the 1992 autumn statement had been maintained for each local authority in Yorkshire and Humberside; (3) what estimate he has of the number of housing association homes for rent which will be built in 1996–97 in each local authority in Yorkshire and Humberside; 
(4) what is the total central Government funding for new rented housing association homes for 1996–97, excluding tenant incentive schemes, do-it-yourself share ownership and major repairs of sales programmes for each local authority in Yorkshire and Humberside. 
The 1992 autumn statement provided indicative funding levels for 1993–94 to 1995–96, and not 1996–97. In 1996–97, funding for the Housing Corporation's approved development programme will be over £1 billion. Together with homes provided from local authority funding for housing associations and other sources, this is expected to provide around 60,600 homes for rent or shared ownership in 1996–97.Separate figures for rent and the sale and incentive programmes will be available when the Housing Corporation has assessed housing associations' bids for 1996–97 projects and finalised the approved development programme, in late January. The corporation will thereafter publish details of ADP funding allocations in each local authority area.
