That 4% is classified as revenue and hence has now been divided between revenue intervention types. In order to respect the original split between the three Investment priorities: People and Skills; Communities and Place; and Supporting Local Business, the 4% has been split at varying rates between the interventions in each investment priority. The revised allocations are set out in Appendix A.
