INTERREG Programme: Finance

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 8 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much funding the Government will be providing in co-payments towards the EU INTERREG (a) IVA, (b) IVB and (c) IVC programmes over the next three years. (203043)

The Government will not be providing match funding for projects in the new programmes. But we will be contributing towards their technical assistance budgets which are used for funding the programme secretariats. These secretariats deal with the day to day management of the programmes including arranging project applications, project monitoring and providing general advice. The UK contribution for April 2008 to March 2010 will be:
