Recreation Spaces: Enfield

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much his Department spent on parks and green spaces in the London Borough of Enfield in real terms in each year since 1997. (202861)

The DCMS has not spent any money on parks and green spaces in the London borough of Enfield as the Department does not directly fund these amenities—funding at local level is provided to local authorities via Communities and Local Government.

DCMS mainly channels its Exchequer funding via its family of non-departmental public bodies, who provide a wide variety of services at national, regional and local levels.
