§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what tourist projects in the development areas received assistance from public funds in the year 1976.
§ Mr. Meacher
Projects assisted ranged from fresh accommodation and catering facilities through recreational centres to museums and amateur railways. Information about individual projects—which may be assisted in England either by the English Tourist Board or by the Council for Small Industries in Rural Areas—is not normally published without the consent of applicants; but these bodies' statutory reports, available in the Library of the House, provide information about overall expenditure in financial years up to the end of March 1976.
Assistance in Scotland and Wales is the responsibility of my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Scotland and Wales.
