§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what payments would be made available to Scotland from the Regional Development Fund over the next three years if Great Britain were to remain in the Common Market, indicating what percentage these amounts would represent of the total benefit to the United Kingdom in each case.
§ Mr. Millan:
It is not possible to predict what part of the gross total of £150 million available to the United Kingdom from the Regional Development Fund over the next three years may be paid to Scotland. In recent years Scotland has received about one-third of the sums spent by the British Government on regional preferential assistance.
