To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether his Department holds copies of the European Commission audit reports relating to his Department’s administration of the European Regional Development Fund. (308421)

Yes. Auditors from the European Court of Auditors and the European Commission carry out audits on English ERDF programmes. This is to ensure that they are managed in compliance with the financial control requirements of the European Commission Regulations and Directives. Their audit reports are sent to this Department, as Managing Authority for the programmes.
