I have been asked to reply.

The smallest geographical area within the UK covered by a Structural Funds Operational Programme is Greater London. The second smallest is Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Over the last five years (2007 to 2011) some €470 million of Structural Funds has been allocated to London and some €458 million has been allocated to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
