HC Deb 01 March 1973 vol 851 c393W
25. Mr. Laurance Reed

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is satisfied with progress to date with the urban aid programme.

Mr. Lane

Over 2,600 projects have so far been approved in England and Wales in 196 different local authority areas. I welcome the rising scale of the programme and the growing local support for this valuable form of special aid to areas with acute social problems.
