asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how much money has been allocated for the urban programme holiday project for 1985. What expenditure has been agreed in Yorkshire and Humberside; and how both programmes compare with equivalent expenditure in 1984.

[pursuant to his reply, 17 June 1985, c.23]: Approvals for holiday play schemes under traditional urban programme circular 25 (1985/86) totalled £400,000, of which £32,000 were for schemes in Yorkshire and Humberside. Corresponding figures for 1984–85 were £855,000 and £74,000. There was a 10 per cent. reduction in total resources for the traditional urban programme, with new money falling by half because of the high level of existing commitments. Resources for partnership and programme authorities were not reduced.
