£250 million is being provided for the Starter Home Initiative (SHI) over the three years 200102 to 200304 to help key workers to buy homes in areas where they would otherwise be priced out of the housing market. This includes SHI expenditure of £2.173 million to help key workers in 200102.
Mr. Andrew Turner: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what assessment he has made of where the cost of providing affordable housing in sites suitable for market-price housing is borne. 
The provision of affordable housing on a site can affect both developer profit and land value. The research "Delivering Affordable Housing through Planning Policy", published by the Department in February 2002, advised that the effect will vary depending on the type of affordable housing sought and the level of payment it generates to the developer.

Mr. Andrew Turner: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions which of the agencies and NDPBs sponsored by his Department have a regional organisation; and if he will list the counties and unitary authorities in each region in (a) 1997 and (b) 2002. 
The Rent Service is organised into the three regions of: north (England); south and midlands; and London and east. These regions correspond to the regional boundaries of the Government offices for, respectively, the north- east, north-west, and Yorkshire and the Humber; the west midlands, east midlands, and the south-west; and London, east of England, and south-east.
The Marine and Coastguard Agency is organised into three regions: Scotland and Northern Ireland; eastern; and Wales and west. As these relate to England, these also incorporate complete Government office regions in almost every respect.
The Housing Corporation has four field offices in the regions of London, south, central and north, with local offices beneath these. These regions correspond to the regional boundaries of the Government offices for, respectively, London; the south-east and south-west; the west midlands, east midlands, and east of England; and the north-west, north-east, and Yorkshire and the Humber.
The Health and Safety Executive has a field operations headquarters in Bootle, with regional offices in divisions defined as Scotland, the north-west, Yorkshire and the north-east, midlands, Wales and west, the home counties, and London and the south-east.
Mr. Andrew Turner: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what regional organisation his Department has; and if he will list the counties and unitary authorities in each region in (a) 1997 and (b) 2002. 
The nine Government offices for the regions carry out work for my Department in a number of areas including housing, planning, transport, neighbourhood renewal, local government and the administration of European structural funds.
The information about local authorities in the east of England given in annexe A of the White Paper "Your Region, Your Choice" was incorrect. It should have shown that there are four unitary authoritiesas set out in this tableand 44 shire districts.
