HC Deb 17 May 1976 vol 911 c361W
Mr. Crawford

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what was the total amount of money spent, at the latest convenient date, by the NEB on industrial and commercial projects.

Mr. Les Huckfield

My right hon Friend has endorsed proposals which would entail expenditure by the NEB of about £68 million for industrial and commercial purposes. Expenditure for similar purposes which does not require my approval is a matter for the NEB.
