HC Deb 26 June 2003 vol 407 cc893-4W
Mr. Cummings

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will make a statement on the future funding of the Coalfield Regeneration Trust. [114658]

The Coal Field Regeneration Trust's current funding agreement for England continues until March 2005. Decisions on funding beyond that date will be taken in the light of it's continued good performance and evidence of the beneficial impact of the Trust on the coalfield communities.
