asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will explain his reasons for his decision to withdraw urban aid programme funding for the Information Technology Centre 6502 in Moss Side, Manchester; and if he will make a statement.

Urban programme funding for the Moss Side information technology centre has not been withdrawn. Urban programme grant was given on the capital costs (£83,000) of the centre on its establishment in 1982 and aid at £32,000 per annum towards its running costs in the first three years. That support has been extended at a level of £16,000 per annum for a further three years.
