§ Rev. Ian Paisley
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the total amount of money received in Northern Ireland by grants from the EEC.
§ Mr. Moyle
, pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 20th May 1976; Vol. 911, c. 707], gave the following information:
About £7.25 million has been received in Northern Ireland directly from EEC funds. A further £25.699 million has been allocated to Northern Ireland and claims for payment have been or will be submitted to the relevant Fund in accordance with standard EEC procedure. However, a large proportion of 421W grants from the EEC are made to the United Kingdom as a whole and it is not possible to calculate precisely Northern Ireland's share of these receipts.
