§ Mr. Blaker
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the total amount granted or loaned, or approved for grant or loan, in respect of projects in the United Kingdom since 31st December 1972 under the Guidance section of the European Agricultural Fund.
§ Mr. Peart
The fund does not make loans for individual capital projects. As regards the total amount of grant approved, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Carmarthen (Mr. Jones) on 18th July 1974. The Commission is expected to announce a further series of approvals of 1973 applications today or tomorrow.
