HC Deb 02 May 1975 vol 891 c268W
Mr. Park

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department to what extent the findings of the community development projects have been taken into account in determining national and local government policy.

Mr. Alexander W. Lyon

Only two projects, Coventry and Liverpool, have completed a full programme of work; the project teams are at present writing up their experience for the information of central and local government interests, among others. Interim reports received from all projects are taken into account, wherever relevant, in the formulation of policy at central and local levels.

Mr. Kinnock

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list in the Official Report (a) estimates for expenditure, and (b) expenditure drawn upon, to finance the community development projects for each year since the inception of the scheme.

Mr. Alexander W. Lyon

Expenditure at outturn prices relating to England and Wales, and excluding the cost of social action schemes, is as follows:

1970–71 0.05
1971–72 0.1
1972–73 0.2
1973–74 0.4
1974–75 0.5

My noble Friend will write to my hon. Friend about estimates of expenditure for these periods.
