Housing: Finance

Volume 506: debated on Tuesday 2 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government when he expects to publish further proposals on reform of the Housing Revenue Account subsidy system; and if he will make a statement. (318918)

In the consultation paper in July, I proposed a devolved system of responsibility and funding for council housing. On 16 December I announced that the responses show strong support for the principle of self-financing. I intend to make a further announcement in the next few weeks which will describe the progress we have made on self-financing, set-out more details of my proposals and provide a summary of responses to the consultation.
