(1) Schemes signed in 2006-07. First payments will be for 2006-07 but have not yet been agreed with authorities.

Mr. Austin Mitchell: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) what rents were charged by each local authority in each year since 1996; and what notional rents were assumed in each year; [107139]

(2) what the (a) actual rents charged and (b) national rents assumed on council housing were in each local authority in each year since 1996. [107185]

Yvette Cooper: Average actual weekly local authority rents in England are published, by local authority, in table 702. The table may be found via the following link:

Papers showing the notional guideline rents for each authority in those years have been placed in the House Library.

Mr. Austin Mitchell: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assumptions on (a) rent allowances for management and maintenance and major repairs and (b) interest rates in later years were used in the pilot study examining six local authorities for the National Housing Revenue Account. [107184]

Yvette Cooper: The six local authorities participating in the self-financing pilot scheme are currently preparing business plans on the basis of the following ‘base-case’ working assumptions.

These assumptions will be reviewed towards the end of the pilot exercise. National interest rates are not used in the business plans.

Mr. Austin Mitchell: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the total local authority council housing debt was in each year since 1990; what interest was paid on the debt; and what allowance was made for debt service charges in the housing revenue account subsidy system. [107238]

Mr. Woolas: Total actual local authority housing debt since 1990 and the allowance we make for debt service charges in the Housing Revenue Account subsidy system is as follows:

The actual figures on housing debt are not the same as the notional debt figures which we used to calculate the debt service charges.

Communities and Local Government does not have data on the actual interest local authorities paid on their housing debt.

2004-05 is the latest year for which audited data is available.
