Lord Redesdale

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much money has been allocated to the Millennium Volunteers project; how much money has been spent by the Millennium Volunteers project to date; and what schemes have benefited. [HL4008]

The Minister of State, Department for Education and Employment (Baroness Blackstone)

£47.75 million has been made available to the Millennium Volunteers programme in England up to the end of March 2002. This includes £12.75 million from the windfall tax which is available over the lifetime of this Parliament. £6,210,000 has been spent on the initiative in England up to the end of August 2000. We have now contracted for 157 projects, which will incur an expense of £34 million.
