Rural Support

Volume 454: debated on Thursday 14 December 2006

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs what programmes her Department operates to provide particular provision in rural areas; and what the cost of such programmes is expected to be in 2007-08. (108252)

The Government are committed to building a strong economy and fair society where there is opportunity and security for all. This commitment applies equally in rural and urban areas. The majority of this Department’s programmes benefit both rural and urban areas. However, to provide information on the cost of these programmes in rural areas alone is possible only at disproportionate cost.
