HC Deb 17 April 1978 vol 948 cc18-9W
Mr. Kenneth Clarke

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what progress the European Commission is making in the review that it has been carrying out of the United Kingdom's system of regional aids; and in what ways the Government have been involved with and assisting in that review.

Mr. Cryer

The Commission's review of the United Kingdom system of regional aids is continuing, but it will be some time before the review can be completed and the results of it are known. The Government have been providing statistical information requested by the Commission.
