Basement wall foundation

Dear julian

I assume when you say there is only one Number 5 bar in the the footing you 
mean horizontally.  Perhaps you can consider the horizontal wall steel in the 
masonry as part of the steel in the footing.   Since the block and the 
concrete are bonded together with vertical bars, perhaps the horzontal 
footing steel and the horzontal wall steel  serve the same function.

Thats how I would look at it.
