We are clear that having reviewed the overall financial position, the previous Government have left a large funding black hole in their plans for social housing. This Government, as part of their plans to tackle this funding black hole, have chosen to recycle £170 million of the £6.2 billion of efficiency savings announced last month into social housing.

The Emergency Budget on 22 June set out further measures to deal with the budget deficit and give confidence to the economy. With regards to housing budgets we are continuing to review the position with HM Treasury and will be reaching a conclusion soon.
