Abstract

The Towns Fund is a scheme designed to support towns across England, particularly those with high levels of income deprivation. Chris Hanretty takes a look at the selection of towns invited to bid for funding under the scheme. He finds that the funding decisions were driven by party-political considerations, not by need.
