asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the total expenditure by county councils and by metropolitan councils on land reclamation in 1980–81; and what is the allocated expenditure for each for this purpose in 1982–83.

The total expenditure incurred by county councils and metropolitan councils on approved schemes of derelict land reclamation in 1980–81 was £6·3 million and £12·3 million respectively. The 1982–83 provision is being allocated currently, and I will write to the Hon. Member when this has been completed.
