Ms Keeble

[holding answer 19 November 2001]: I have been asked to reply.

The Leicester North West SRB 5 Programme, which covers five housing estates, including Beaumont Leys and Stocking Farm, was agreed by Ministers as part of the SRB programme. To date 29 jobs have created, along with other outputs such as refurbishment of community buildings, CCTV provision, improvement of local advice services, projects to reduce crime, vandalism, domestic violence, and assist vulnerable youngsters. The programme received £1.9 million in the last financial year.
