HC Deb 19 December 1975 vol 902 c879W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what proportion of the cost of community industry schemes being undertaken by local authorities in Wales can be met by central Government contributions funded from the block grant the Government receive from the European Social Fund for this purpose.

Mr. Harold Walker

Half of the expenditure from the Department of Employment's grant in aid in respect of community industry activities in Wales has been met by assistance from the European Social Fund since the beginning of 1974.
