HC Deb 06 July 1983 vol 45 c116W
41. Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any plans to improve the inner city programme resources in Birmingham.

Sir George Young

My right hon. Friend has done so. The allocation to the Birmingham inner city partnership in 1983–84 is £24.1 million, an increase of 6 per cent. over 1982–83. In addition, eight urban development grant schemes to a total value of £46 million have been approved, attracting grant of £6.4 million. Allocations for future years will depend on the inner area programme agreed by the partnership as well as the quality of urban development grant applications and the availability of resources.
