34. Mr. Eyre

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what special steps he proposes to assist those living in the twilight areas of the major conurbations.

Mr. Shore

I would remind the hon. Gentleman of my statement to the House on 6th April—[Vol. 929, c. 1226–44.]

35. Mr. Peter Bottomley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment for what construction purposes the £100 mil lion allocated to inner city development will be used.

Mr. Shore

As my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer said in his Budget speech, it is likely that the work will include the rehabilitation and improvement of old housing, industrial site preparation, the building of advance factories, school improvements, community buildings, day centres, health facilities and the reclamation of derelict and neglected land.

36. Mr. Hal Miller

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will include proposals to aid areas on the fringe of inner areas of the large urban conurbations in the forthcoming White Paper on urban problems.

Mr. Shore

The White Paper will be addressed to the problems of our inner cities. I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my hon. Friend earlier today to the hon. Member for Liverpool, Wavertree (Mr. Steen).
