To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how much funding from the Sustainable Communities Fund will be made available to projects that owing to their nature do not have clearly defined financial returns. [108999]

The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister expects all of the funding allocated in the Sustainable Communities Plan to provide good value for money. In some cases the benefits that will be delivered can be valued in financial returns. In others the benefits cannot be measured in that way, but this does not mean that they are any less valuable. No distinction was made between benefits that can be valued in financial terms and other benefits in allocating funding to deliver sustainable communities.
