HC Deb 24 January 2001 vol 361 cc605-6W
Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions how much public funding has been allocated for regeneration purposes to the London Borough of Wandsworth since May 1997. [146500]

Ms Armstrong

The information requested is, as far as possible, given in the following paragraphSingle Regeneration Budget—£25.588 million

Single Regeneration Budget (SRB) funding figures relate to the lifetime amount awarded to schemes since round 3 (round 3 being the 1997–98 award period). As these are lifetime figures this does not reflect the annual amount spent; rather the figures represent the amount paid plus the amount outstanding within the award. However where an award is agreed, in principle, funding is released on an annual basis and this release is dependent upon the total available budget at the time of the annual review. Figures are given for those schemes where the relevant Borough Council is the Accountable Body. Funding may have been awarded to organisations within the borough, or working within the borough, over and above these figures. Figures provided reflect the amounts which were awarded directly to the Local Authority only—source London Development Agency.
