The information requested, is in the table:

£ million
1990–91 14.8
1991–92 12.5
1992–93 12.1
1993–94 11.9
1994–95 7.7
1995–96 7.3
1996–97 6.9
1997–98 5.5
1998–99 7.4
1999–2000 8.2
2000–01 12.1
2001–02 16.5
2002–03 16.7
2003–04 16.3

The figures cover housing annual capital guidelines (which include an element to be financed from authorities' capital receipts); the major repairs allowance; support for disabled facilities grants; the Capital Receipts Initiative; and ring-fenced support for a number of housing schemes, e.g. Cash Incentive Schemes. Estate Action scheme funding is excluded. The reduction in 2003–04 mainly reflects a change in the local government capital finance system, which means the allocations no longer include an element assumed to be financed from authorities capital receipts.
