HC Deb 23 May 1974 vol 874 c233W
Mr. Madden

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will make a statement on regional aid policies, with particular reference to intermediate planning areas in West Yorkshire.

Mr. Heffer

As I said in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Rhondda (Mr. Jones) on 29th April, we intend to maintain the existing system of regional incentives, though adjustments may have to be made from time to time. Regional development grants and regional selective assistance will thus continue to be available in the Yorkshire and Humberside Intermediate Area.—[Vol. 872, c.347–8.]
