§ 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.
