HC Deb 15 March 1985 vol 75 cc304-5W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he monitors how many projects collapse within 12 months of becoming time-expired under the inner city partnerships in cases where the project is not subsequently supported by a local authority.

Sir George Young

The Department carries out an annual survey of time-expired urban programme projects. At the end of 1983–84, within all the partnership and programme authorities, only two time-expired voluntary sector projects for which renewed urban programme support was sought and refused failed subsequently to receive local authority funding. The survey did not investigate what happened to these projects.
