§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the President of the Board of Trade, taking 100 as the figure for investment per head in England and Wales, what were the figures for Scotland from October, 1964, up to the most recent date in relation to grants under the Local Employment Act; and if he will state the total sums involved.
§ Mr. Jay
Grants under the Local Employment Acts offered between 1st October, 1964, and 30th November, 1965, totalled £15.15 million in England and Wales and £8.34 million in Scotland. Taking the figure of grants per insured employee in England and Wales as 100, the corresponding figure for Scotland would be about 500. Related only to insured employees in the development districts, and again taking the figure for England and Wales as 100, the comparable figure for Scotland would be about 75.
