HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 cc139-40W
Mr. Peter Bruinvels

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any plans to assume greater central control over the operation of the inner area programme; if he will detail the amount to be given to Leicester under the programme; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Rumbold

All partnership and programme authority inner area programmes are subject to approval by Ministers; there are no plans to change these arrangements. The inner area programme allocation for Leicester for 1986–87 is £5.43 million.
