§ Mr. Frank R. White
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the bid entered by the Bury 409W metropolitan council for a share of the additional sums made available for home improvement grants in the 1982–83 budget; and how much was allocated to the sections for intermediate or repair grants.
§ Mr. Stanley
Bury metropolitan council entered a bid for £746,000, including £84,000 for intermediate grants and £182,000 for repair grants. The council's provisional allocation of £600,000 does not include a specific sub-allocation for intermediate or repair grants, but can be used for all forms of home improvement grants.
