§ Mr. Scott
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) which voluntary organisations concerned with play projects were consulted in the process of drafting the White Paper on the urban programme;
(2) whether the urban programme will continue to support play projects; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gay Barnett
Several voluntary bodies responded to the general invitation to comment issued when the summary reports of the inner area studies were published in January but none was specifically concerned with play. Play projects will continue to be eligible for the urban programme under the arrangements announced by my right hon. Friend on 6th April.—[Vol. 929, c. 1226–46.]
