Q46.

asked the Prime Minister what responsibilities she has given to the members of the Government with regard to integrating different Departments' action on urban renewal in inner city areas.

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment has responsibility for the inter-departmental urban programme which targets specific grant resources on urban areas to support a range of initiatives to stimulate enterprise, improve the environment and encourage self-help. My noble Friend the Secretary of State for Employment oversees the work of the five city action teams in the inner city partnership areas to improve the contribution of the programmes of his department and the Manpower Services Commission, Department of Trade and Industry and the Department of the Environment towards meeting the needs of those areas. Other Government Departments are also involved in the work of the city action teams.
