§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what review he has made of the success of the urban restoration scheme, since the submission by local authorities of their final bids; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
I am glad to say that there has been an excellent response from the local authorities to this special scheme for environmental improvement. Government grant of £1 million was originally envisaged, but I230W am now making available £3.2 million towards the cost of all eligible projects. which amounts to £3.8 million.
