§ Mr. Laurance Reed
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) how many acres of derelict land are scheduled to be restored by Bolton, Farnworth, Turton, Little Lever, West Houghton, Kearsley, Blackrod and Horwich in 1972, and how much will be spent by each authority;
(2) how many acres of derelict land are scheduled to be reclaimed in the North West Region during 1972; and what is the total sum of money involved.
§ Mr. Graham Page
Estimates of the acreage of derelict land likely to be reclaimed by all agencies in 1972 are at present being collected as part of the 1971 survey and are not yet available. It is not possible to indicate how much money is spent in any given period by all agencies. The Department's information relates only to local authority grant-aided schemes.
