V: Finance

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what funding from the public purse is being provided for the charity v in 2008-09; and how much was provided in 2007-08. (202707)

In 2008-09, £39 million will be provided by the Office of the Third Sector. In addition, v is able to draw down on Government match funding on a pound for pound basis, when they secure funding from the private sector, as set out in Budget 2005.

For the funding provided in 2007-08, I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) on 20 February 2008, Official Report, column 743W.
