§ Mr. John Fraser
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why the urban programme resources for the London borough of Lambeth have been reduced from an estimated outturn of £13.2 million in 1986–87 to art allocation of £12.8 million in 1987–88.
§ Mr. Tracey
There is strong competition for urban programme resources. They are allocated to local authorities on the basis both of their needs, and of their performance in delivering programmes which meet ministerial priorities. Lambeth still has the largest allocation in London.
