HC Deb 02 June 1992 vol 208 c385W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how much derelict land grant was paid in Liverpool last year; how much is budgeted for the present year; and if he will consider ways of accelerating the treatment and landscaping of derelict urban land.

Mr. Baldry

Derelict land grant paid in Liverpool last year was £2,315,190. The provisional grant allocation for the present year is £1,508,000.

In order to improve the delivery of policies for land development, including the reclamation of derelict urban land, the Government propose to establish an urban regeneration agency. One of the agency's main objectives will be to treat derelict land in urban areas.
