§ 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.
