HC Deb 12 February 1976 vol 905 cc284-5W
42. Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why he has decided to withdraw grant support from the Community Development Project Information and Intelligence Unit.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to Questions by my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry, South-West (Mrs. Wise) and others on 9th February.—[Vol. 905, c.17–19.]

43. Mr. Douglas-Mann

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make a statement about the community development projects and the intention of his Department about their future support and extension.

Mr. Alexander W. Lyon

Home Office grants towards the cost of local community development projects will continue to be available to the local authorities willing and able to meet their share of the cost for the remainder of the period originally envisaged as the life of each project. There are no plans to extend projects beyond that period.
