Grant Shapps: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the Answer of 31 January 2008, Official Report, column 583W, and 1 February 2008, Official Report, column 690-91W, on housing: low incomes, what the early repayment charges are on (a) Part 1 and (b) Part 2 of the loans offered by Yorkshire Building Society if the mortgage is redeemed or the property is sold within the first five years of the mortgage. 
Mr. Paul Goodman: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government when the Housing Corporation plans to produce an assessment methodology for determining the impact of affordable housing investment decisions on community cohesion; and if she will make a statement. 
Mr. Iain Wright: As set out in the response to the Commission on Integration and Cohesion, published on 4 February, the Housing Corporation within their Affordable Housing Programme requires all Investment Partners to provide a Method Statement that details how they intend to meet the needs of diverse communities.
Andrew Stunell: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the (a) percentage increase and (b) cash change in (i) housing management allowance, (ii) housing maintenance allowance and (iii) major works allowance subsidies for local authorities in England was in each year since 1997. 
|Management cash change (£)||Maintenance cash change (£)||MR cash change (£)||Management change||Maintenance change (%)||MRA change (%)|
|(1) Major repairs allowance introduced in 2001-2002. Note: Data pre-2000-2001 are only available at disproportionate cost.|
Figures in the table are based on stock weighted average allowances for England. Certain factors used in the calculation of allowances are updated every year. For instance, the costs of building labour varies regionally and this variation can fluctuate from year to year. This means that the allowances for management, maintenance and the MRA can have regional variations in them from year to year. These variations redistribute the management, maintenance and MRA pot within the allowances, rather than adding extra allowance.
Ms Keeble: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answers of 18 December 2007, Official Report, columns 1328-9W, on housing standards, which councils have delivery dates to meet the decent home standard; and what those dates are in each case. 
Ms Keeble: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government which local authorities have given her Department notice that they will not be able to achieve the decent homes standard by 2010. 
Mr. Ellwood: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will list the (a) 2026 new housing targets and (b) annual new housing targets proposed by each of the advisory panels of all the respective regional assemblies in England. 
Mr. Iain Wright [holding answer 26 February 2008]: The Government sets the overall strategy for housing supply in England. The Housing Green Paper, Homes for the Future: more affordable, more sustainable (July 2007), sets out a target to increase housing supply to 240,000 additional homes per annum by 2016.
