Waste Improvement Network: Finance

Volume 506: debated on Wednesday 3 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much funding (a) his Department and (b) the Regional Efficiency Improvement Partnership have given to the Waste Improvement Network in each year since its inception; and what the forecast level of funding by each is for (i) 2009-10, (ii) 2010-11 and (iii) 2011-12. (319314)

The Department has not provided funding directly to the Waste Improvement Network (WIN), nor has it any plans to do so in the future.

Regional Improvement and Efficiency Partnerships (RIEPs) report to the Department on the basis of outcomes achieved and objectives delivered; they are not required to report in detail about to whom they have given money. However, we are aware that WIN was established by the predecessor to the South East RIEP in 2006-07 with funding of £89,700, and that forecast investment by them is as follows:

2009-10: £15,000

2010-11: £15,000.
