HC Deb 27 April 1983 vol 41 cc328-9W
29. Mr. Dormand

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied with the clearance of derelict land in the northern region; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Giles Shaw

I am satisfied that substantial and worthwhile progress has been made, though much remains to be done. The region's allocation for derelict land grant this year is £10 million, 54 percent. up on last year's initial provision.
