§ Lord Bethell
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How much money has been made available from the European Regional Development Fund, in each of the past three years, for each London borough; and whether they will give details of each individual project which has received funds. [HL2]
§ Baroness Hayman
London has benefited significantly from the European Regional Development Fund over the last three years and will continue to do so until 2001.
The 1994-96 ERDF Objective 2 programme made £45 million in European funds available to regenerate some of the most needy of these areas and has made a significant contribution to developing disused and derelict industrial sites; spreading technological innovation; supporting businesses, cultural industries and job creation initiatives. London is now in its second phase of Objective 2 funding which will make available a further £65 million for the East London and Lee Valley Objective 2 area until the year 2001.
The expenditure has been concentrated in the East London and Lee Valley Objective 2 area, covering specific parts of six London boroughs—Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.
The table below shows European Regional Development Fund grants including Community Initiatives such as Konver and URBAN, awarded to London boroughs for each of the last three calendar years. The information has been compiled according to the location of the grant recipients. A copy of this table will be placed in the Library.241WA
