HC Deb 10 February 1988 vol 127 cc253-4W
36. Mr. Simon Hughes

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make a statement concerning expenditure of Government funds by the North Peckham task force.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Since the Government's North Peckham task force was set up in 1986, some £4.2 million of Government funds have been committed for task force projects benefiting the residents of the area. Of this, about £1.2 million has come from funds available to task forces and £3 million from other Government programmes.
