HC Deb 09 May 1977 vol 931 c365W
Mr. John H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he will now take to keep urban renewal schemes under continuous review and, in particular, those for cities and towns such as Sheffield, excluded from grants made by him in April.

Mr. Shore

As I informed the House on 6th April—[Vol. 929, c. 1226–46.]—outside those areas where the Government offer partnership arrangements authorities will be free to prepare inner area programmes, and the Government will consider linking urban grants to those programmes, though necessarily on a modest scale in the early years.
