York: Science City

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 18 January 2007

18. To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what assistance the Government have provided to York as a science city. (116336)

Since 1998 Science City York has secured funding of £3.5 million. The funding sources include the City of York council, European funding, the Learning and Skills Council and Yorkshire Forward.

The main change since my hon. Friend asked the same question on 8 June 2006 is the addition of £470,000 to meet the three-year salary costs (2007 to 2009) and recruit administrative support for the new post of chief executive, Science City York.

A further £2.63 million is allocated from Northern Way.
