Council Housing: Sales - Parliamentary Written Answer

John Healey: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what estimate he has made of the cost of processing and validating local authority data on the sale of higher value
council homes.

Brandon Lewis: To cover the cost of providing the data about housing stock, we made a one-off grant payment of £5,000 to each local authority with a Housing Revenue Account. No estimate has been made about the ongoing cost of keeping this data up-to-date. The processing and validating of the data is being carried out by departmental officials as part of policy development.
