asked the Paymaster General why the Manpower Services Commission has reduced the funding of the Age Concern scheme in St. John's Centre Stourbridge; and if he will make a statement.

[pursuant to his reply, 8 May 1987]: Organisations applying for community programme funding have to show all the income expected to be generated by projects together with other non-Manpower Services Commission moneys which may be available to them. This information is needed so that decisions may be made both about viability and the appropriate level of MSC funding.Stourbridge Age Concern declined to provide this information and its application to continue the project could not, therefore, be considered.
