asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will publish his proposals for the urban development grant and the traditional urban aid programme for the future in the county of Cumbria.

Friend has agreed to consider proposals from the local authority associations on the assessment of need in urban areas for future years. Allerdale, as an enterprise zone authority, is invited to bid for urban development grant.
