HC Deb 05 August 1971 vol 822 c370W
Mr. Kenneth Clarke

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement about extension of the Community Development Project to further areas.

Mr. Maudling

Yes. Two further local authorities in England have agreed to take part: the County Council of Cumberland and the City Council of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. This brings the total number of participating authorities in Great Britain to nine. I hope in due course to announce the agreement of three more local authorities to take part.
