'Named day' questions only occur in the House of Commons. The MP tabling the question specifies the date on which they should receive an answer. MPs may not table more than five named day questions on a single day.
Following the Grenfell Tower tragedy we have been working urgently to identify any other buildings over 18 metres with potentially unsafe aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding. With the support of local authorities, fire and rescue services and the expert panel, MHCLG is supporting building owners to take immediate steps to ensure the safety of residents. Homes England is also reviewing the implications where homes may have been purchased with the support of Help to Buy Equity Loan.
The Government does not hold data for every year since 2010-11. In March this year we published a study on “The Incidence, Value and Delivery of Planning Obligations and Community Infrastructure Levy in England in 2016-17”. This found that last year Section 106 obligations with estimated value of £5.1 billion had been levied. This included affordable housing contributions worth an estimated £4 billion. £75 million of this was delivered through commuted sums, and the remainder was delivered in-kind.
Excluding affordable housing and land, s106 obligations to the value of £613.1 million were levied in direct contributions, and obligations to the value of £72.1 million were levied in in kind contributions.
