Mr. Jim Cunningham: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how many people were on the housing need list in Coventry, South on the latest date for which figures are available; how many new lettings there were in the constituency in 200405; and how many new dwellings are expected to become available for new tenancies within the constituency in 200506.

However, information is not held centrally where a RSL maintains a separate waiting list to the local authority.

Yvette Cooper: Local authority social housing grant (LASHG) was an unfair funding mechanism that did not allocate funds to areas of greatest need, consistently underspent nationally, and gave unfair advantage to debt free local authorities. It was abolished on 1 April 2003. Under new arrangements, resources for housing are targeted to areas of greatest need, in line with the measures set out in Sustainable communities: building for the future".
Yvette Cooper: Initially the South East England regional assembly is responsible for drafting the regional waste strategy, which forms part of the regional spatial strategy for the south east. Once the draft strategy has been tested and finalised by Government, the assembly becomes responsible for implementing and monitoring the strategy. Government expects to consult on further changes of the regional waste strategy this summer.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how many local authority-maintained streetlights there were in each London borough per 1,000 population in the last period for which figures are available. 
The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister is currently processing up-to-date data on the number of streetlighting columns in England. This data will be available shortly.

Jim Fitzpatrick: Since 3 July 2000, the Mayor has had overall responsibility for traffic management in London. Traffic wardens are employed by Transport for London to enforce parking on the Priority (Red) Route Network (TfL Roads).
However, responsibility for parking enforcement in London, generally rests with the relevant local authority. London boroughs employ parking attendants to enforce parking controls on all the roads for which they are the highway authority.
