Mr. Loughton

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to Cm 4917, if he will make a statement on the participation of people with disabilities in his proposals for tax reliefs for regeneration schemes. [138201]

Dawn Primarolo

[holding answer 13 November 2000]: The Government are determined that disabled people have the opportunity to lead fulfilling and independent lives and play a full and active role in society.

The Government have been encouraged by the work of the first three Urban Regeneration Companies (URCs)Liverpool Vision, New East Manchester, and Sheffield One-in developing a clear vision and strategy for key areas of these cities. The Government will continue to monitor the URCs carefully, and will consider how a tax relief could help to promote their development. At present no decisions have been made on the details of any possible tax relief.
