HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 cc12-3W
Mr. Millan

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what forms of regional assistance will be available in special development areas, in addition to that available in development areas, under the Government's new proposals for regional policy, as compared to the immediately preceding position.

Mr. Anthony Grant

My right hon. Friend the Minister for Industrial Development made such a comparison in reply to a Question on 19th April from my hon. Friend the Member for the Cities of London and Westminster (Mr. Tugendhat). It is not possible to make a valid comparison of the selective assistance now proposed with the corresponding measures previously in force since the circumstances of every application vary.—[Vol. 835, c. 107–11.]
