I refer the Hon. Member to my written answer to him of 23 October 2014, PQ 210903.
More broadly, I would note:
· In 2014-15, Birmingham has an area spending power per dwelling of £2,679, considerably more than the comparable English average of £2,089.
· Birmingham City Council is estimated to receive total government grants of £3,319 per dwelling in 2014-15; this compares with the English average of £2,628 and is the 13th highest in England (budgeted figures for revenue expenditure and financing; excludes income from mandatory housing benefits; includes education spending).
