§ Mr. Haseldine
asked the President of the Board of Trade on what grounds he made concessions to the working party of the Confederation of British Industry regarding investment incentive allowances; and what other organisations have made representations on this subject.
§ Mr. Darling
The modifications which have been made in the investment grants scheme as a result of discussions with the Confederation of British Industry and other organisations are designed to improve the effectiveness and practical working of the scheme outlined in the White Paper on Investment Incentives138W (Cmnd. 2874). Representations about the scheme have been received from a large number of organisations concerned with industry and commerce.
