HC Deb 02 June 1954 vol 528 c98W
Mr. Higgs

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will now state the names of the trade and employers' associations which are to receive a share of the £72,000 sterling grant from counterpart funds derived from United States economic aid and the sum allocated to each.

Mr. H. Strauss

Yes. The list is as follows:

Association of Jute Spinners and Manufacturers 10,000
Federation of Master Printers 5,000
Wool and Allied Textile Employers' Council 9,000
Joint Clothing Council 10,000
National Hosiery Manufacturers' Federation 6,000
Association of Brass and Bronze Founders 6,000
Zinc Development Association 15,000
Two organisations which were expected to receive grants have decided not to accept the allocations offered, and the balance of the provisional allocations, viz., £11,000, has been added to the general reserve of the counterpart funds.
