To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what information his Department holds on the proportion of funding transferred from the Department of Health to his Department for purposes of improving public health which is being spent on (a) leisure provision, (b) housing, (c) anti-social behaviour and (d) improving the environment.
The Department of Communities and Local Government does not hold this information. The ring-fenced Public Health Grant is transferred from the Department of Health to local authorities and the allocation covers both services mandated through regulation and all other services that local authorities may wish to commission locally. It is left for local authorities to decide what proportion of spending should be devoted to different services.
