Disadvantaged: Finance

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how much funding was allocated by his Department under the deprived areas fund to each local authority in (a) 2006-07 and (b) 2007-08. (254452)

[holding answer 5 February 2009]: No funding was allocated by DWP to local authorities in 2006-07 or 2007-08 under the deprived areas fund.

In 2006-07 the deprived areas fund was allocated direct to district managers in Jobcentre Plus.

In 2007-08 the deprived areas fund was allocated directly to district managers in Jobcentre Plus and to 15 city strategy pathfinders. However, some pathfinders elected to receive their deprived areas fund via a nominated local authority acting as their lead accountable body. Allocations are shown in the tables.
