HL Deb 12 May 1980 vol 409 cc93-4WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

On what date an application for grant aid to the Community Roots and Resources Centre under the self-help budget was submitted by the Commission for Racial Equality and the Home Office; when they expect to make a decision; and why there has been such a long delay in replying to this application.


The application was sent by the Commission for Racial Equality to the Home Office on 2nd May 1979. It raised a number of difficulties, which have been the subject of corres- pondence with the commission. The commission has now been told that approval cannot be given to a grant for this project.
