HC Deb 06 July 1994 vol 246 c207W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement on the reasons for the delay in objective funding for the Hope Street theatre training scheme in Liverpool.

Mr. Baldry

I have been asked to reply.

No objective 1 projects have been approved. Although negotiations on this Merseyside single programming document have been completed with the Commission, it—with the other United Kingdom objective 1 SPDs—is still waiting for the Commission to complete its internal procedures. Applications for European social funding supported projects such as Hope Street are, however, being invited this week.
