Housing Corporations Regulatory Statistical Return (RSR)
Ms Buck: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) how many nominations have been offered to each London local authority through sub-regional housing partnerships since their introduction; 
(2) what proportion of new housing units in each London local authority have been offered to other boroughs through the sub-regional housing partnerships since 2003-04; and what proportion that figure represents of all new units in that period. 
Yvette Cooper: The Department for Communities and Local Government does not hold detailed information on the sub-regional nominations to London boroughs for new affordable housing funded with social housing grant through the Housing Corporations Affordable Housing Programme.
Ms Buck: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what proportion of new housing units in each London local authority were designated as housing for disabled people in each of the last three years. 
As part of Capital Moves, the proposed pan-London choice based lettings and mobility scheme, the Greater London Authority are developing a pan-London accessible housing register to better enable disabled people to find appropriate housing.
Ms Buck: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) what the average equity purchase was by people buying shared ownership properties in (a) England, (b) each English region and (c) each London local authority in the last 12 months; 
(2) what estimates she has made of the minimum household income required to enable a purchaser to buy a shared ownership property in (a) England, (b) each English region and (c) each London local authority. 
Yvette Cooper: The Department does not set minimum income limits for purchasers of shared ownership properties as this will vary depending on individual circumstances, including other outgoings and whether purchasers have a deposit. HomeBuy agents, as appointed housing associations who handle the application process, will make an assessment based on the maximum share that individual purchasers can afford and sustain.
The average initial equity stake for shared ownership properties in England for the 2005-06 financial year is 49 per cent. Information for each region and for each London local authority is shown in the following tables.
