§ Jeremy Corbyn
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions if he will list the investment by English local authorities in new build of homes for rent in the past year; and if he will also list, per housing authority, by(a) joint venture and (b) other resources. 
§ Ms Keeble
[holding answer 25 February 2002]: Available information reported by local authorities about their capital investment during 2000–01 in the provision of new homes, including support for registered social landlords, has been placed in the Libraries of the House. Information collected by the Department on local authorities' funding of housing capital expenditure does not separately identify joint venture resources. The available information on funding for each local authority in England was provided in my answer of 27 February 2002 [Ref: 36621] to my hon. Friend.
