§ Mr. Heseltine
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the 68W breakdown of capital expenditure, as shown on table 2.7,"Housing"of Cmnd. 7439, between land, new dwellings, acquisitions, improvements and other, for 1979–80, 1980–81, 1981–82 and 1982–83.
§ Mr. Shore
The estimated breakdown for 1979–80 given below takes account of figures included in housing investment programme bids by local authorities last year and trends in expenditure. Actual expenditure, following allocations made last November, may show a different pattern since authorities are entirely free to switch expenditure between the first four headings.
£ million at 1978 Survey Prices Land 130 New dwellings 1,300 Acquisitions 90 Improvements 540 Other 86 2,146
The aggregate provision for later years will be distributed between programmes year by year in the light of actual HIP returns.
