Wildlife: Finance

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 25 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many local authorities applied to his Department for funding to support local wildlife facilities in each of the last five years. (300771)

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on 17 January 2008, Official Report, column 1394W, by my hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham, Deptford (Joan Ruddock), to the same question. We do not directly fund, or keep a national register of, small community-led projects tackling the local environment, important though these are. My hon. Friend is welcome to write to me with a more specific request and I will respond to him.
