To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what estimate his Department has made of the amount of (a) European Regional Development and (b) European Structural funding which will be received by the (i) East Midlands, (ii) East of England, (iii) London, (iv) North East, (v) North West, (vi) South East, (vii) South West, (viii) West Midlands and (ix) Yorkshire and Humber in each year between 2014 and 2020.
18 April 2016
Within England, notional allocations for the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and European Social Fund (ESF) for the 2014-2020 programming period were made on the basis of Local Enterprise Partnership areas. Transposing these allocations to regional boundaries, the total estimated amount of ERDF and ESF for the 2014-2020 programming period for each region in England is as follows:
East of England
Yorkshire and Humber
Total for England
It should be noted that some Local Enterprise Partnership areas cross the boundaries of regions and therefore the actual spend pattern may not wholly reflect the above notional allocations. Furthermore, Local Enterprise Partnerships and other local partners were asked to suggest the appropriate split between ESF and ERDF in strategies for their area and it is not possible to transpose this accurately to each region.
The allocations for each year at England level are fixed in the respective programmes for ESF and ERDF.
