Community Assets Programme

Volume 475: debated on Wednesday 7 May 2008

8. To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what progress has been made on the community assets programme; and if he will make a statement. (203762)

The £30 million Community Assets programme is making excellent progress. Last month it announced 37 in-principle awards to refurbish assets that will be transferred to third sector ownership. The projects are imaginative and varied: from inner-city spaces offering alternative education for young people to cutting edge theatre and art, and health and keep fit services.
