§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) how many applications to the Board of Trade Advisory Committee for grants are currently under consideration; and what is their value;
(2) how many applications to the Board of Trade Advisory Committee for grants have been under consideration by the Committee for more than six months; and what is their value.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
Applicacations for Local Employment Acts assistance are made to the Board of Trade, who consult the Advisory Committee as necessary under the terms of the Acts. The number of grant applications which the Advisory Committee have been advised were eligible for consideration and which were under investigation by the Committee at 30th November, 1967, was 699. Details of the values of these applications and the time they have been outstanding are not readily available and it would involve disproportionate time and effort to extract them.
