To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many new affordable houses are planned to be built in each of the next five years. (115899)

We are planning to provide 30,000 social rented homes in 2007-08 and expect to help 160,000 households to access home ownership through private or public shared equity schemes by 2010.

The number of homes to be provided each year from 2008-09 will be subject to the outcome of the Comprehensive Spending Review 2007.
