To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the Answer of 30 September 2019 to Question 291138, on Stronger Towns Fund: Leigh, if he will publish (a) the full methodology and (b) the score of each town within Leigh constituency.

As part of the process of identifying the initial 100 places, towns have been chosen on the basis of a robust selection methodology. This took into account various qualitative and quantitative indicators including income deprivation, skills, productivity, EU exit exposure, economic shocks, investment opportunities, and policy alignment.

As the development of Town Deal proposals is a live process it would not be appropriate for the Department to publish individual scores.
