To ask the Scottish Executive whether it will indicate how much of the funding consequentials arising from the UK Budget 2009 it intends to allocate to housing in Scotland.
Answered by John Swinney (15/06/2009): As a result of the funding consequentials from the UK Budget, we are allocating an extra £31 million in 2009-10 to boost affordable housing supply in Scotland. This will include new funds to accelerate and sustain investment in new housing developments for affordable rent across the country, and also funding to kick-start and unblock private developments to help deliver homes for mid-market rent and for low cost ownership. We are maintaining flexibility in the precise allocation of the funding to ensure value for money for government and to maximise the opportunities to meet housing need and sustain jobs in the construction sector.
