HC Deb 16 July 1990 vol 176 c455W
Mr. Cartwright

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when his Department received an application from the London borough of Greenwich for a grant to Alpha Lighting Ltd. under section 6 of the Inner Urban Areas Act; and when it will be approved.

Mr. Moynihan

The London borough of Greenwich applied originally in January this year for urban programme grant approval for assistance for Alpha Lighting Ltd. The borough's 1989–90 allocation was already fully committed so the application was part of the 1990–91 inner area programme submission. That programme is not yet approved as further information is awaited from the borough. Nevertheless a provisional approval for an urban programme grant for Alpha Lighting Ltd. has been given by the Department in advance of final approval of the borough's full programme.
