Question

Why are you forecasting that you will not spend any of the funding set aside for travellers pitches in the financial year 2013/14? Can you guarantee that this money will be added to future budgets for travellers pitches, rather than transferred to other projects or used to justify future cuts?

Following the statutory requirement for provision of traveller pitches, I have allocated £1m to deliver pitches across the capital this year. The programme is demand- led by boroughs and providers, who are able to bid for this funding.
