To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what information he has on the Manpower Services Commission's policy on the funding of community newspapers.

There are no separate instructions for the funding of community newspapers under the community programme. All proposals for funding of projects to be run under the community programme must satisfy the normal rules of the programme and have the approval of either the local area manpower board or local officials of the Manpower Services Commission with delegated responsibility.
