Through Building Britain's Future we are investing, via the Homes and Communities Agency, over £7.5 billion in 2009-10 and 2010-11 from the National Affordable Housing Programme and other HCA programmes.

With regard to regional targets, I refer the hon. Member to the answer given to him by the Under-Secretary of State my hon. Friend the Member for Dudley, North (Mr. Austin) on 8 July, Official Report, column 905W.

(2) what proportion of funding allocated to the National Affordable Housing Programme for (a) 2009-10 and (b) 2010-11 was expected to be spent prior to the agreement of the new regional targets for affordable housing.

I expect all of the national Affordable Housing Programme budget for 2009-10 and 2010-11 will be spent.
