Minister of State at the Department of the Environment (Mr. Stagg): Areas were designated for urban renewal, in consultation with the local authorities concerned, taking into account such factors as the extent of urban decay and dereliction, the need for conservation and renewal, the potential for redevelopment and regional considerations. The present  programme is due to expire on 31 May 1994 and there are no firm proposals at present for its extension. I am, however, keeping the matter under review.
