HL Deb 28 February 1995 vol 561 cc94-6WA
Lord Harris of Greenwich

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they propose to take following the allegations of impropriety concerning the relationship between the Community Development Trust and the publicly funded Bethnal Green City Challenge.

The Minister of State, Department of the Environment (Viscount Ullswater)

The department has requested a report from the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, who are accountable for the City Challenge Local Authority Grant given to the Bethnal Green City Challenge Company. The City Challenge Company has commissioned a report from independent auditors. Any further action by the department will be dependent on the contents of those reports.
