UIN 5412, tabled on 25 October 2019

The release of financial contributions towards City and Growth deals can only be made with the sign-off of Full Business Cases. The timescale to achieve this is primarily dependent on the pace and resourcing of the relevant Councils and Deal partners. For devolved projects, a restored Executive will have to consider the question of match-funding and agreement of individual projects.
