Local authorities are receiving £46.6m in section 11 grant to combat racial inequality in this financial year, Home Office minister Peter Lloyd said (WA 11 May col 257).

Replying to a question from Helen Jackson (Labour, Sheffield, Hillsborough), Mr Lloyd outlined figures showing that London was receiving just under £14m and the south-east, eastern, north-west and east Midlands around £5-6m. The south-west; west Midlands and Yorkshire and Humberside were getting between £1-2m and the north-east just over £500,000.

Mr Lloyd said: 'We envisage that the particular needs of ethnic minorities in the future will be met either through section 11 funding or through wider regeneration programmes under the single regeneration budget.'
