The employment effects of each Regional Growth Fund project and programme are spread across many local authorities. The tables attached show the number of bids to the Regional Growth Fund, and the number approved, for each region of England in bidding rounds 1-6.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 14 October 2014 to Question UIN 206062, which provides a breakdown of the value of bids received by region for Rounds 1-5.
