§ 63 and 64. Mr. Eadie
asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) how much money firms received as a result of the Board of Trade Advisory Council recommendations to his Department in the county of Midlothian during the years 1964 to the nearest available date in 1968;
(2) how many firms have been refused Board of Trade Advisory Council assistance in the years 1964 to 1968, to the nearest available date, in the county of Midlothian.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
Separate figures for Midlothian are not readily available and could be extracted only by the expenditure of considerable time and effort. But in the period April, 1964, to December, 1967, £15.3 million was paid in building grants to firms in Scotland and £21.2 million in general purpose loans and grants. The corresponding numbers of applications refused on the advice of the Committee were 81 in the case of building grants and 97 in the case of general purpose loans and grants.
