Yvette Cooper: The 2007 Sustainable Communities Summit was planned as a self funding event. Forecast expenditures and revenues were both £4.3 million. Expenditures were to be recouped through exhibitor and sponsorship revenues and delegate fees.
Yvette Cooper: The numbers of units of affordable housing provided to rural areas in each financial year since 1997-98 are in the table. Affordable housing supply data is available at local authority level therefore it is only possible to measure how many dwellings have been built in local authorities classified as rural using the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) rural definitions. This will include dwellings built in towns that are within a local authority classified as rural, but will not include dwellings built in small towns or villages within local authorities classified as urban.

Chris Huhne: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate she has made of the (a) number and (b) area of sites designated as derelict land, broken down by region; and what the figures were (i) five and (ii) 10 years ago. 
Yvette Cooper: The information available is from the National Land Use Database of Previously-Developed Land, which was carried out on an experimental basis in 1998 and annually from 2001. The estimates of area are shown in the following table. The local authorities which provide the data make an allowance for small sites but these are not recorded individually, so that it is not possible to give an estimate of the total number of sites.
