To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will list for each council in England the capital receipts(a) released in 1997–98 and (b) to be released in 1998–99, giving for each year the proportion used on new building and capital repairs and the number of homes involved in each case.

Details of the 1997–98 and 1998–99 total allocations of Capital Receipts Initiative resources to each local authority in England have been placed in the 311W Library. I will write further to my hon. and Learned Friend in a few weeks' time when the detail on the returns has been analysed.
