Housing: Overcrowding

Volume 468: debated on Thursday 29 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will add to her Department's Public Service Agreement 20 performance indicators on (a) the number of families with children living in overcrowded housing and (b) the number of social rented homes to be built in 2008-09 and 2009-10. (163157)

The Government have no current plans to revise PSA20, which is focused on increasing long-term housing supply and affordability.

The number of affordable homes delivered each year over the CSR period, including the number of homes for social rent, will be measured by PSA20 indicator three: 'Number of affordable homes delivered (gross)'.
