Housing is set to bear the brunt of cuts in yesterday's budget, with real cuts of £110m in the housing association programme and a £148m cut in the money for renovating rundown council estates, warned the ALA today.

Local authorities will once again be allowed to spend only one quarter of the proceeds from the sale of council homes and spending on rundown urban areas is set to fall by a massive £142m over the next two years. The association calculates a £600m loss to London.

Leader of the ALA, Toby Harris said: 'The government clearly want to blame local councils for any painful cuts which arise out of their own mismanagement of the economy.'
