HC Deb 17 December 1993 vol 234 c1088W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the initiatives through which urban regeneration funds have been made available and the amount that his Department provided.

Sir George Young

Several Government Departments contribute to urban regeneration through a wide range of programmes. My Department's main targeted urban group programmes are:

  • City Challenge/Urban Programme
  • City Grant/English Partnerships (URA)
  • Derelict Land Grant
  • Urban Development Corporations
  • Inner City Task Forces
  • City Action Teams

Figures for total public expenditure under these initiatives were provided in my reply to the hon. Member on 29 November, Official Report, column 381.

From 1 April 1994, the single regeneration budget will bring together 20 existing Government programmes worth over £1.4 billion in 1994–95.
