HC Deb 23 March 1987 vol 113 c44W
Ms. Harman

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he plans to take to increase the provision of holiday play schemes by each local authority.

Mr. Tracey

It is for individual local authorities to determine which projects to support from their own resources or from resources allocated to them through specific programmes such as the urban programme, within any relevant guidelines. In 1986–87 support for children's play projects through the urban programme totalled about £6.6 million.
