HC Deb 11 October 1976 vol 917 cc5-6W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will list the various schemes of aid and assistance to industry for which his Department is responsible and which do not operate in the West Midlands.

Mr. Alan Williams

Regional development grant for plant and machinery is not paid in any part of the West Midlands. As the Oswestry intermediate area lies within the region all other schemes of assistance to industry for which I am responsible are available to qualifying firms in part or all of the region.
