HL Deb 07 December 1998 vol 595 c66WA
Lord Alton of Liverpool

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much Government funding has been allocated to Age Concern during 1997–98; whether any of this money was earmarked for the Millennium Debate of the Age; and, if so, how much. [HL130]

Baroness Hayman

During 1997–98 Age Concern received from the Government a mix of project and core grants totalling £1,850,000.

None of the funds awarded to Age Concern were as a result of bids for assistance with the Millennium Debate.
