Housing Revenue Accounts

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 3 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the expected (a) level of Housing Revenue Account Subsidy and (b) number of households in social housing is in each local authority area in England for (i) 2008-09 and (ii) 2009-10. (253237)

The following table gives figures for the level of Housing Revenue Account Subsidy for each local authority in England in 2008-09.

Subsidy figures for 2009-10 are not available at present as we are still to receive 2009-10 claim forms from local authorities.

We do not collect information by household for social housing in local authority areas for Housing Revenue Account Subsidy purposes. The table includes the number of dwellings for each local authority on 1 April 2007.
