HC Deb 31 January 2002 vol 379 c542W
Mr. Gordon Marsden

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what effect shifting English Heritage grant schemes towards maintenance will have on current sources of grant aid. [30857]

Dr. Howells

Government grant in aid to English Heritage will be increased by £5 million in 2002–03 and £11 million in 2003–04 to £115.5 million and £121.4 million respectively.

It is for English Heritage to decide what priority to give expenditure on their grant schemes from the overall resources available to it from Government grant in aid, as well as from its own fund raising activities.
