HC Deb 28 February 1996 vol 272 cc613-4W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list each local authority in receipt of grant aid under the single regeneration budget and its predecessors together with the sums they received as a cumulative total and for each year since 1979. [17071]

Sir Paul Beresford

The total amounts received by local authorities in grant aid each year since 1989–90, under the programmes which now form the single regeneration budget, are as follows.

1989–90 309,032,000
1990–91 325,942,000
1991–92 326,896,000
1992–93 387,985,000
1993–94 511,880,000
1994–95 405,312,000
1995–961 734,085,000
1 Forecast.

The 1995–96 forecast total includes grant payments from the single regeneration budget challenge fund to local partnerships, where a local authority is the nominated accountable body for the partnership. Local authorities may also be receiving grant indirectly where they are members of such partnerships, but are not the accountable bodies.

A breakdown of the totals by each recipient local authority, with information for earlier years than 1989–90, could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
