In April 2014 all partners were given feedback relating to their specific bids and an opportunity to make changes in response. The feedback given to individual partners should not be interpreted as having any implications for the programme as a whole. I do not intend to release information in relation to bids prior to allocation decisions, which are expected to be made in July 2014.
