asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how much money is being made available in 1979–80 and 1980–81 in each of the partnership areas under the urban aid programme; whether this is additional funding under specific partnership programmes, specifying the total amount as well as separate allocations; and whether the partnership money was in addition to the original allocation under the urban aid programme.

The broad comparison between the two years at November 1978 prices is:

Manchester/Salford11·82

These allocations are additional to individual partnership authorities' receipts from central government through other specific and supplementary grants. They subsume the original allocation under the traditional urban programme to projects in the partnerships' inner areas.
