Regeneration

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 29 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what regeneration projects received funding from his Department in each of the last six years; and at what cost. (128118)

Regeneration (both urban and rural) has been funded by NI Departments through a number of programmes and projects as shown in the following table. Figures are presented showing resource and capital expenditure. For the first five years these figures are actual outturn (2001 to 2006), while projected expenditure is used for the current financial year (2006-07). It would have been possible to provide a response detailing each individual project only at disproportionate cost.
