Mr. Dhanda: Social landlords (including local authorities and registered social landlords) can apply for injunctions to tackle antisocial behaviour under the Housing Act 1996. These are commonly known as antisocial behaviour injunctions. Using their powers under the Local Government Act 1972, local authorities may also apply to the civil courts for injunctions to restrain antisocial behaviour that constitutes a public nuisance.
Large registered social landlords (those owning and/or managing 1,000 or more units/bedspaces) successfully applied for 1,319 antisocial behaviour injunctions from April 2007 to March 2008. These figures were collected by the Housing Corporation. Figures for smaller registered social landlords are not available.
The Department has asked local authorities to submit information for 2007-08 on antisocial behaviour injunctions and those injunctions available to them under the Local Government Act 1972. These figures are not yet available.
To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to Annex B, Table 1 of her Department's annual report 2008, what proportion of the provision recorded as
unallocated for (a) 2008-09, (b) 2009-10 and (c) 2010-11 has now been allocated. 
Mr. Dhanda: None. Any changes involving proposed use of Departmental Unallocated Provision for 2008-09 will be included in the Department's Winter or Spring Supplementary Estimates and accompanying Ministerial Statements to the House. As yet, none of the 2009-10 and 2010-11 allocations have been allocated to a programme.
Mr. Peter Ainsworth: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate her Department has made of (a) the number of households displaced and (b) the amount of uninsured losses caused by the recent flooding, broken down by local authority area. 
John Healey: An assessment of the impact of the recent flooding is still being made and it is too early, at this stage, to assess how many households will be out of their homes for a significant period. Information by area is not available but in Morpeth, the worst affected area, it was estimated that around 500 residents attended the emergency rest centres. The information needed to assess the level of uninsured losses could only be gathered at disproportionate cost.
Dan Rogerson: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many complaints the Standards Board for England has investigated in each of the last 10 years; and what the (a) outcome of the investigation and (b) consequent action taken was in each case. 
Mr. Dhanda: The Standards Board for England came into existence in 2001 and its first full year of operation was 2002-03. The following tables show the number of investigations dealt with per financial year and the outcomes of those investigations, and the consequent action taken in each case.
