§ Mr. Crossman:
In two of the four first phase areas, Coventry and Liverpool, local project directors and teams have been working since early this year. In the third, Southwark, work will begin in September, a project director having recently been appointed. In Glamorgan, work has not yet started.
These teams are appointed, in consultation with the central project directorate in the Home Office, by the local authority concerned.
The Government are now considering the choice of further areas for the project's second phase.
