HC Deb 10 February 1977 vol 925 c836W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for Industry how much public money in the form of investment grants and similar grants has been paid to IBM during the period September 1967 to September 1976 year by year.

Mr. Hoyle

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what amount of public money has been received from his Department by IBM over the last 10 years; and if he will list the annual amounts over this period.

Mr. Alan Williams

I regret that this information is not readily available. A quite disproportionate amount of time, effort and cost would be required to extract the information requested on investment grants and regional development grants. No other grant payments have been made to this company.
