HC Deb 23 February 1978 vol 944 c768W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how much of the £1 million fund allocated to the United Kingdom to meet the costs resulting from recent floods and snow will be allocated to England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

Mr. Shore

The EEC has decided to grant a maximum total of 1½ million eua—approximately £975,000—in relation to the damage caused by recent bad weather. The Government are considering to what purposes the money is to be put, and when that has been decided a further statement will be made.
