HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 cc372-3W
Mr. Geraint Howells

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what is the latest figures of Government grants to manufacturing companies in Ceredigion over the last five years.

Mr. Heffer

I regret that the information relating to Ceredigion is not available. However, in the five years ending 31st March 1974 investment grants totalling £208 million and regional development grants totalling £16 million were paid to firms in Wales. In addition offers totalling £65 million and £14 million were made under, respectively, the Local Empoyment Act and Section 7 of the Industry Act.
