(2) which local authorities (a) are due to receive a housing revenue account subsidy in 2009-10 and (b) have received a housing revenue account subsidy in each of the last five years; what the level of each subsidy was; how many relevant dwellings there were in each authority; and if she will make a statement.

Information on whether a local authority may be in either positive or negative Housing Revenue Account (HRA) subsidy in 2009-10 is not yet available.

The information requested for the last five years is available on the Department’s website or in the Library of the House. However, for convenience separate tables showing which local authorities received negative HRA subsidy, and which received positive subsidy, including the levels of subsidy and each authority’s housing stock for the years 2004-05 to 2008-09, have been placed in the Library of the House.
