To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will provide a breakdown of expenditure on the urban programme annually from 1979–80 to 1987–88 according to outturn expenditure in (a) partnership, (b) programme authorities, (c) other designated districts, (d) urban development grants, (e) traditional urban programme, (f) Merseyside task force and (g) any others.

The information is in the table. This updates a table "The Urban Programme 1986–87: A Report on its operations and achievements in England" which was published by the Department in October 1987.

The figures are shown in the table. The table records outturn expenditure for 1979–80 to 1985–86, estimated outturn for 1986–87 and the initial allocations for 1987–88, since outturn data are not yet available.
