Council Housing: Finance

Volume 498: debated on Thursday 29 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate he has made of the amount of housing debt in each local authority. (292890)

The assumed Housing Debt, the Subsidy Capital Financing Requirement, for each authority is calculated annually by my Department using data supplied by the local authorities themselves on their HRA Subsidy base data forms. The information is published, after consultation, in annual HRA Subsidy Determinations. The 2009-10 Determination is available on the Communities and Local Government website at this address:
