1 The enabling grant with the London Regional Strategic Migration Partnership for 2008-09 was deferred by mutual agreement. The first instalment of the grant, as set out above, payable from 1 April 2008, was made on 1 October 2008. In practice this reduced the grant available for the 2008-09 financial year to £85,000. The amount and timing of the grant payable in respect of the 2009-10 financial year remained as previously agreed; and a further payment of £85,000 is to be paid on or after 1 April 2010.

We are unable to provide details of the specific enabling grant prior to 2007. Data could be provided only at disproportionate cost to the agency.
