Grant Shapps: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to the answer to the hon.

Robert Neill: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to his Department's publication entitled FiReControl Project: Equalities Impact Assessment, December 2009, what the reasons were for the time taken to undertake the SMS emergency number project; and how much had been spent on that project on the latest date for which figures are available. 
Mr. Malik: The SMS emergency number project is managed and part funded by British Telecommunications plc, with additional funding from the mobile service providers. While the project is welcomed by the Government and emergency services, information about the cost to BT is not available to CLG. It is not part of the FiReControl Project.
Margaret Moran: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment he has made of the effect of the provisions of the Equality Bill on the operation of (a) the Tenants Services Authority, (b) the Homes and Communities Agency and (c) registered social landlords. 
John Healey: Following Royal Assent, the Government intend to add-by secondary legislation-a number of bodies to the list of public authorities in Schedule 19 to the Equality Bill, including the Tenant Services Authority (TSA) and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), thereby making them subject to the proposed public sector equality duty.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much of the £84 million for cavity wall insulation in the social sector announced in April has been spent in each region. 
Mr. Ian Austin: The funds from the Social Housing Energy Savings Programme are released in arrears after landlords have already made their expenditure. The Homes and Communities Agency monitor financial output on a quarterly basis. The first schemes to start to invest under this programme began in quarter 3 of 2009-10, the HCA do not yet have final output figures. A table of allocations by region split over the two years of the programme follows.

John Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) what assumptions affecting the next three years regarding write-off provisions for local authority losses in Icelandic banks his Department has made; 
Barbara Follett: Investment decisions are a matter for local authorities. It is for those local authorities which had investments in Icelandic banks to make provision in their financial plans for estimated losses.
John Mann: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate he has made of the extent of losses incurred by local authorities through investment in Icelandic banks. 
Barbara Follett: CLG has not made any such estimates. The Resolution Committee for Landsbanki and Glitnir and the UK administrators of Heritable and Kaupthing Singer and Friedland Ltd. have published information on likely rates of return. Local authorities are in direct contact with these administrators.
Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much funding has been granted under the new deal for communities in each (a) local authority and (b) lower layer super output area in each year since 2000. 
Ms Rosie Winterton: The grant for each NDC by local authority area is shown in the following tables. It is not possible to provide spend or budget information at lower super output area (LSOA) because NDC areas are composed of several LSOAs, and are also often not consistent with LSOA boundaries. Allocations are, therefore, not able to be disaggregated to LSOA level.
