HC Deb 02 December 1983 vol 49 c645W
Mr. Martin

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how much in public funds has been received by the Springburn festival since its inception.

Mr. Ancram

In 1981 capital expenditure of £2,250 and annual revenue expenditure of £6,650 for three years was approved for funding under the urban programme. In 1982–83 the Scottish Arts Council gave a grant of £750. I understand that the Manpower Services Commission has paid to the organisation £70,138 under the youth opportunities programme and £14,698 under the youth training scheme. A further £7,500 will have been paid on 1 December. In addition, a total of £65,444 was paid under the former community enterprise programme.
