Mr. Robin Squire

Most of the programmes specified fall within my Department's urban group of programmes which are targeted mainly on the 57 urban priority areas. These do not include Hampshire local authorities. However, Hampshire local authorities did receive the following:

Derelict land grant
District council £ million
1987–88 Portsmouth 0.249
1988–89 Portsmouth 0.190
1991–92 Portsmouth 0.003
Test Valley 0.004
1992–93 Portsmouth 0.009

Estate action
District council £ million
1989–90 Eastleigh 0.105
Southampton 0.105
1990–91 Southampton 0.209
1991–92 Southampton 0.184
Portsmouth 0.250
1992–93 Portsmouth 1.184
The 1992–93 figures are projected outturn.

Expenditure under my Department's urban group of programmes is expected to exceed £1 billion in 1992–93. Details of my Department's programmes are in the relevant public expenditure White Papers and the Department's annual reports; the 1993 annual report will be published shortly.
