HC Deb 24 February 2003 vol 400 c357W
Mr. Drew

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans he has to organise a further round of funding of the building capacity grant. [97043]

Jacqui Smith

The Building Care Capacity Grant 2002–3 represents the final year of this funding to local authorities. Funding for building capacity was absorbed within the overall personal social services settlement for 2003–04. Furthermore, the Access and Systems Capacity Grant 2003–4 is a new grant, intended to expand the capacity and range of community based social care services for older people, and is being distributed according to the new older people's formula for social services.
