HC Deb 27 April 1993 vol 223 c364W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list those road schemes in Wales which in 1993–94 have been allocated urban programme grants in excess of £1 million; what are the criteria which determine the allocation of such grants; and what is the extent of funding by virtue of such grants.

Sir Wyn Roberts

Road schemes are eligible for urban programme support only where they form an integral part of wider economic regeneration schemes. In 1993–94 one road scheme attracted urban programme grant in excess of £1 million: the highway improvements to the A472/A467 junction at Crumlin, Gwent which is part of the Crumlin regeneration strategy. This project has, in principle, been allocated £1,770 million urban programme in 1993–94, including £0.770 million carried forward from the previous year.
