In 2008-09, £396 million in LABGI grants was allocated and distributed to local authorities, in respect of business growth in 2007-08. Details of how this funding was distributed are set out in the relevant Grant Determinations, which can be viewed on the Communities and Local Government website at:
Grant Determination No 2 (2008) [No 31/1238]
Grant Determination No2 (2009) [No 31/1287]
Paper copies of the above have been sent to the hon. Lady and copies have been deposited in the Commons Library.
I refer the hon. Lady to the answer given to the hon. Member for Rochdale (Paul Rowen) on 7 July, Official Report, column 835. The final details about the allocation and distribution of LABGI funds in 2009-10 and 2010-11 are currently being discussed with Treasury Ministers and an announcement will be made in the next few weeks.
Records are not kept centrally of how local authorities spend LABGI funding. The grants are not ring-fenced and it is for local authorities to decide how the money is best spent.
