Monday, October 13th, 2014

Simon Kirby: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what the total private finance initiative liabilities of his Department are for the next 20 years; and if he will make a statement.

Kris Hopkins: The Department does not have any PFI projects of its own but does provide support to local authority PFI projects through the revenue support grant system.

This Department has achieved programme savings of £497 million since 2010 from projects during procurement and savings from operational PFI projects of £33 million.
