Bob Spink: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many local authority tenants in Castle Point have been evicted from accommodation for non-payment of rent in each of the last 12 months; and what proportion of those tenants had dependants living with them. 
Grant Shapps: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer of 7 May 2009, Official Report, column 383W, on council housing (1) what the civil service pay band of each member of the Review of Council Housing Finance team is; 
Mr. Ian Austin: The pay bands for civil servants from my Department working on the Review are Grade 5 (Deputy Director), Grade 6, Grade 7, Senior Executive Officer (SEO), Higher Executive Officer (HEO) and Executive Officer. The civil servants from HM Treasury are Range E (which is equivalent to Grades 6 and 7) and Range D (which is equivalent to SEO and HEO). All civil servants are employed and remunerated on standard departmental terms and conditions.
The local authority secondee is on secondment from Sheffield city council. The council is continuing to pay his wages and expenses, which are reimbursed by my Department in respect of time spent working on the review. The secondment is on standard departmental terms and conditions.
The £186,000 that was spent on other activity includes the reimbursement of the secondee's wages and expenses to Sheffield city council. It cannot be broken down without identifying these payments, which would breach data protection principles in respect of the secondee.
The answer of 7 May 2009, Official Report, column 383W, included details of review expenditure to the end of March 2009. Details of costs incurred by the review since then cannot be provided without breaching data protection principles in respect of the secondee from Sheffield city council.
Lynne Featherstone: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the written ministerial statement of 6 March 2009, Official Report, columns 71-72WS, on local authority rents, which local authorities have applied for financial support for reduced rent increases for council tenants; and if he will make a statement.
