Housing: Sutton

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government when she received the Sutton Housing Partnership's decent homes funding bid; when she expects to acknowledge its receipt; and when she expects to make a decision about the bid. (146678)

Communities and Local Government received the funding bid from Sutton Housing Partnership on 31 July 2006 under Round 6 of the Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) decent homes programme, and acknowledged receipt on that date. We have received many bids in Round 6 from local authorities who are seeking to secure additional funding and join those already on the ALMO programme. We are continuing to consider these bids very carefully, paying particular attention to overall costs and value for money, in the context of the current Comprehensive Spending Review.
