Volume 698: debated on Tuesday 29 January 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Baroness Andrews on 11 December 2007 (WA 30), what was the underspend in the Objective 2 regional programmes in 2007 in each English region. [HL1573]

There were no underspends on the objective 2 programmes in eight out of nine English regions in 2007. In the north-west region, there was an underspend of £3.4 million which represents less than 1 per cent of the region’s overall allocation of £637 million.
