HC Deb 29 March 1994 vol 240 c660W
Mr. Barnes

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the latest available annual figures for grants for children's play facilities; and if he will list in each case the size and location of the grant.

Mr. Baldry

The latest forecast of expenditure under the urban programme in 1993–94 includes £3,042,000 for children's play facilities. Figures for individual grants are not available centrally. In addition, my Department provides local authorities with revenue support grant which they may use to fund such facilities. The total amount of revenue support grant for England and its distribution among local authorities are set out in the "Local Government Finance Report (England) 1994–95" and the accompanying exemplifications, which were placed in the Library of the House on 27 January 1994.
