HC Deb 19 March 1998 vol 308 c701W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what proposals he has for a replacement for City Challenge. [35310]

Angela Eagle

The Government will be considering in the light of the Regeneration Comprehensive Spending Review and the consultation on their paper 'Regeneration—the Way Forward', issued in November 1997, how to take forward the development of regeneration policy. In practice, the Single Regeneration Budget (SRB) Challenge Fund has already carried forward the principles of City Challenge. The results of the fourth round of the SRB Challenge Fund are expected to be announced shortly.
