HC Deb 21 May 1973 vol 857 cc24-5W
Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what studies are being carried out for regional development projects in Northern Ireland for submission to the European Economic Community.

Mr. van Straubenzee

Consideration of suitable projects is a continuing process. The United Kingdom Government have already submitted to the European Economic Community Commission on behalf of Northern Ireland details of certain projects in the industrial training field which may be eligible for financial assistance under the European Social Fund. Proposals on agriculture for consideration under the Guidance Section of the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund (FEOGA) are also being transmitted.
