HC Deb 08 March 2004 vol 418 cc1285-6W
Mr. Stephen O'Brien

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what plans she has to publish regional analyses of her Department's net spending on Promotion of Enterprise, Innovation and Increased Productivity for 2002–03. [157217]

Ms Hewitt

My Department's spring 2003 Departmental Report (Cm 5916, May 2003) provided regional breakdowns of Government funding for 2002–03 for the Regional Development Agencies and expenditure on Regional Selective Assistance (Chapter 10, figures 10.1 and 10.2). Updated information will be detailed in the spring 2004 Departmental Report, which is due to be published in April 2004.

The Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (PESA) 2003 (Cm 50901, May 2003) provided a more wide-ranging analysis of public expenditure by country and region for 1998–99 to 2001–02. The 2004 edition will be published alongside this spring's Departmental Reports.
