To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he will provide a table of expenditure showing the cost of running each inner city task force for each year from 1987–88 (a) at current prices and (b) at 1987–88 prices;(2) if he will provide a table of expenditure on each inner city task force from his Department for each year from 1987–88
(a) at current prices and (b) at 1987–88 prices.
The costs of running the inner city task forces and the overall expenditure of each for the period from 1989–90 to 1991–92 is set out in the following tables:
|Table A: Running Costs|
|All figures inclusive of capital costs of office machinery, furniture and supplies.|
|1991–92 figures include hard charges for DTI services.|
|Table B: Expenditure|
Running costs apportioned to individual task forces before the financial year 1989–90 are not readily available. Figures are not available on a 1987–88 price basis. To provide this would incur disproportionate costs.
On 1 June 1992 financial responsibility for the task forces was transferred to my Department from the Department of Trade and Industry.
