To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what funding his Department has provided to the C-Far project in Highampton, Devon. [112149]

The National Probation Service and the Prison Service have agreed to make £150,000 available to C-FAR for this financial year (subject to confirmation of health and safety standards). This is in addition to the £20,000 previously set aside to assist with the cost of the independent evaluation of the 'Life Change' programme operated by C-FAR. Of this, a payment of £10,000 has already been made by the Prison Service in 2002. The remaining £10,000 from the National Probation Service was subject to progress with the independent evaluation and will be paid shortly. C-FAR also received a payment of £150,000 from the Criminal Justice System Reserve in 2001–02 as a contribution to the continuing costs of the programme.
