To ask the Secretary of State, what plans his Department has to open the competition for the grant to support implementation of the Tobacco Control Plan for England this year.
29 November 2017
The Department is still considering the scope and procurement process for grants to support the implementation of the Tobacco Control Plan. Cabinet Office standards require all new grants to be subject to competition. Our intention is to make any future grant available on a multi-year basis, subject to an appropriate business case and satisfactory performance on the part of the funded bodies.
