asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will reconsider urgently the urban aid allocation to Bradford to meet revenue expenditure; what representations he has received from Bradford metropolitan council and Bradford voluntary agencies about the service implications of the urban aid allocation being reduced; and if he will make a statement.

I have received a letter from city councillors and the Council for Voluntary Service. I do not propose to alter the allocation, which is the same in cash as last year. While it allows slightly less for revenue it allows more for capital expenditure.
