To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what impact the Government's proposals to phase release of capital receipts will have on the availability of affordable housing units in City of Chester. 
§ Ms Armstrong
We will ensure that resources released under the Capital Receipts Initiative are made available to local authorities to use in support of priority schemes which meet key objectives. We will be considering and consulting on objectives and the distribution of additional 159W spending over the coming weeks. It will be for local authorities to decide how to use any resources within the general objectives set.
