HC Deb 16 May 1994 vol 243 c342W
Mrs. Helen Jackson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give consideration to protecting educational and social welfare projects which have received section 11 grant since 1992 and which fall outside bidding guidance issued for the single regeneration budget.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

No guarantee can be given as regards the future of existing projects beyond existing commitments but the bidding guidance already covers activity of this sort. The specific aims of the budget include initiatives intended toenhance the employment prospects, education and skills of local people, particularly the young and those at a disadvantage, and promote equality of opportunity and to promote initiatives of benefit to ethnic minorities".
