HC Deb 12 February 1973 vol 850 c231W
Mr. Mason

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many projects are being considered within Yorkshire and Humberside which have been submitted for recognition for special financial assistance; how many have been approved and in which districts of the region; what job prospects are in the offing; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Anthony Grant

To date, 30 formal applications for regional selective assistance under Section 7 of the Industry Act have been received. More than 100 other potential applications are in various stages of discussion with firms. Seven have been approved. I am unable to give details of location without breaking commercial confidence. Similarly, I cannot yet give details of jobs likely to result.
