asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will provide the total revenue and capital figures for the urban programme in the Bradford area for 1984–85 and that projected for 1985–86: and if he will break these figures down into sub-headings under the urban programme.

In 1984–85, Bradford was originally allocated £1·71 million revenue and £2·87 million capital under the urban programme. In 1985–86, the figures were £1·66 million revenue and £2·92 million capital. The initial allocation for 1984–85 was assigned by project category as follows:

In the course of 1984–85, Bradford received an additional Urban Programme capital allocation of £706,000.The breakdown of outturn expenditure for 1984–85 is not yet available and I am awaiting proposals from the city council for securing an acceptable balance of expenditure for 1985–86.

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what percentage of approved Bradford urban programme spending was related to ethnic minority projects in 1984–85; and what is the percentage projected for 1985–86.

In 1984–85, approximately 15 per cent. of Bradford's approved urban programme expenditure of £4·58 million was allocated to projects of specific benefit to ethnic minorities. It is not yet possible to estimate the corresponding figure for 1985–86.
