Community Development

Volume 467: debated on Tuesday 13 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much his Department spent on the Where We Live programme in each of the last three years. (163518)

[holding answer 12 November 2007]: The Where We Live programme now has the new brand-name of Living Places.

The programme is delivered through a partnership between the five leading national cultural agencies, DCMS, DCLG and the Regional Cultural Consortia.

Its aim is to ensure all communities can benefit from cultural and sporting opportunities by embedding culture in the development of our villages, towns and cities.

DCMS contributed £20,000 towards the Thames Gateway Forum in 2006.

DCMS has yet to be invoiced for its contribution of £20,000 from this year's partnership budget.
