Written answers (Question to Housing)

My Department publishes information on the overall number and value of (i) local authority loan approvals and (ii) local authority loan drawdowns. Local authority approval means that an official letter of offer has been sent to a borrower (and therefore relates to a specific property and loan amount).

Figures for the first two quarters of 2020 are available on my Department's website and I will arrange for the relevant weblink to be circulated with the official record.
