(3) No.

(4) In 2003-2004, each ACC received a notional allocation of Regional Partnerships funding that was not less than the notional allocation received in 2002-2003 under the Regional Assistance Programme. Other considerations taken into account in determining notional allocations are whether the ACC is classified as a metropolitan, rural/regional or remote region. Finally, the notional allocation is adjusted to take account of any coverage of an ACC region by the Sustainable Regions Programme.

(6) Yes. See response to part (4)
