HC Deb 30 July 1980 vol 989 c728W
21. Mr. Sever

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied that there will be sufficient funds for the Birmingham inner city partnership scheme during this financial year; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. King

I shall be visiting Birmingham tomorrow to discuss the partnership programme. I hope it will be possible to provide adequate funding for 1980–81 within the current public expenditure constraints.
