Preventing Violent Extremism Pathfinder Fund

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 24 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government which local councils in receipt of Preventing Violent Extremism funding for the year 2008-09 have (a) signed up and (b) not signed up to indicator IN35 as a condition of receiving that funding. (201229)

As Local Area Agreement negotiations are ongoing, I am not in a position to provide the information requested at this time. However it is worth noting that all 198 indicators, including NI 35, will be measured in every relevant local authority.

Funding for preventing violent extremism to local authorities from 2008-09 onwards is based on need and is paid through the Area Based Grant (ABG). As with all other aspects of ABG, this funding is not conditional on inclusion of the relevant National Indicator as a priority indicator.
