§ Mr. Tony Clarke
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions if he will set out, including statistical information relating as directly as possible to the Northampton, South constituency, the effects on Northampton of his Department's policies and action since May 1997. 
§ Dr. Whitehead
The information is as follows:
Rural Farm Building Grant
The SRB funding represents the total SRB allocated during the financial year to a number of projects in the wards listed. The SRB Partnerships appraised and approved the vast majority of these projects. Therefore, East Midlands Development Agency does not have this information readily available. Moreover, as some of these projects operate in all wards and some in specific wards it is not practical to calculate how much funding has been allocated to individual wards.
