§ Brian Cotter:
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will break down the funding allocated under the Phoenix Fund by (a) region and (b) local authority area. 
§ Nigel Griffiths:
The Phoenix Fund does not operate on the basis of allocations to regions or local authority areas. Rather, funds have been awarded to the best applications submitted in response to a number of bidding rounds.
That process has resulted in the following distribution between regions:
Region Amount (£) Eastern 2,516,391 East Midlands 2,769,891 London 11,679,715 North East 2,258,728 North West 9,326,749 South East 2,074,468 South West 4,892,132 West Midlands 6.284,574 Yorkshire and the Humber 6,653,985
It is not possible to provide a corresponding breakdown between local authority areas as many of the Fund's projects operate in more than one local authority area.
