HC Deb 03 December 2003 vol 415 c108W
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. [141612]

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.
