HC Deb 02 November 1979 vol 972 cc695-6W
Mr. Field

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if inner city programmes are being exempted from those cuts in public expenditure upon which his Department is embarking.

Mr. King

The inner city partnership and programme authorities have been told that for the coming financial year their allocations for planning purposes will be at about the same level in real terms as in 1979–80.
