Community Development: Finance

Volume 490: debated on Monday 30 March 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many grants have been made annually by the Active Communities Unit since May 2006; how much that represented; and how many grants were given to anti-trafficking non-governmental organisations. (266857)

In May 2006 the Office of the Third Sector (OTS) was created in the Cabinet Office, incorporating the responsibilities of the active communities directorate in the Home Office and the social enterprise unit in the former Department for Trade and Industry.

In 2006-07 and 2007-08 the OTS did not make any grants to anti-trafficking non- governmental organisations.

Information about 2008-09 will only be available when the Cabinet Office Annual Report and Accounts are laid before Parliament. This is expected to be before summer recess.
