To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment have they made of the loss of social rented homes as housing associations convert them to affordable rented homes.
Answer (Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth)
Since 2010 we have delivered over 357,000 new affordable homes, including almost 128,000 at social rent.
We are providing over £9 billion funding for the Affordable Homes Programme to March 2021. This includes an additional £2 billion, and the ability for local authorities and Housing Associations to bid for funding for social rent homes.
