Volume 458: debated on Monday 12 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what expenditure is planned to be carried out in Pendle by his Department in the years up to 2010; and if he will make a statement. (120613)

The Department for Trade and Industry (DTI) has no expenditure planned in Pendle in the years up to 2010. However, DTI is the sponsor department for the North West Development Agency (NWDA); and the NWDA plans to spend the following on projects in Pendle in the years up to 2010:

£ million

2006-07

4.9

2007-08

6.7

2008-09

2.9

2009-10

1.2

In addition, expenditure on regional programmes, such as the Business Link Service, will also benefit Pendle.

In terms of service provision, it is not possible to determine the exact levels of funding for regional programmes, as the take-up of services in Pendle in the years up to 2010 cannot be forecast.
