HC Deb 13 March 1985 vol 75 cc143-4W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when and in what circumstances inner city partnership funds ceased to be paid to Sabarr collective, Brixton; and what lessons have been learned from the project.

Sir George Young

Payment of urban programme grant to the Sabarr collective was suspended by Lambeth council from January 1984 because of accounting difficulties which I understand have still to be resolved.

The course of this project demonstrates the need for effective financial management of individual urban programme projects.
