Only three out of seven Glasgow bids for a share of£42m of Programme for Partnership funds (formerly part the Urban Programme Budget) have been accepted, despite half of Scotland's most deprived areas being concentrated in the city, The Herald reports (p11).

The three winning bids attracting£14m of the£21m Glasgow might have expected were for Eaterhouse, East End and Glasgow North, with Pollok, Gorbals, Govan and Drumchapel losing out.

Professor Ivan Turrock of Glasgow University told the paper: 'Glasgow has lost out most from this process; it secured far less new resources than it probably deserved to.'

The other sucessful bids in Scotland were North Ayr, Aberdeen G Northern, Edinburgh Craigmillar, Edinburgh North, Dundee - Ardler, Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, W. Dunbartonshire and W. Lanark - Motherwell.
