§ Mr. McBride
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what are the estimated amounts to be paid in Wales for regional employment premium in each of the years 1970 to 1974: and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Bryan
I have been asked to reply.
I regret that the figures are not available in the form requested. The sum expected to be paid in respect of regional employment premium in the Welsh development area in the current financial year, based on the estimate of payments made in the first two quarters of the year, is £13.4 million.
