Management And Maintenance Of Council Housing

EDM number 1459 in 2007-08, proposed by Brian Iddon on 29/04/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Housing standards and Social rented housing.

That this House notes that the Government is undertaking a review of housing revenue accounts (HRAs); further notes that the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, in its June 2003 report Estimate of Need to Spend on Management and Maintenance of Local Authority Housing Stock, showed that management and maintenance allowances only cover 55 per cent. of actual costs; further notes that the March 2008 Department of Communities and Local Government report on HRA financing found that the major repairs allowance covers only 70 per cent. of long-term repair costs; believes that the council house tenant is currently contributing to a debt on council housing that should be seen as a community asset and met from general taxation; further believes that the capital receipts from right-to-buy sales should be reinvested in local authority housing; and calls on the Government to take these matters, highlighted by the Moonlight Robbery Campaign, into consideration in reaching its conclusions on HRAs.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
