Rural Services

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what programmes his Department operates to make particular provision in rural areas; and what the cost of such programmes is expected to be in 2007-08. (108870)

[holding answer 12 December 2006]: 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.
