HC Deb 25 January 1978 vol 942 cc646-7W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what projects have been put forward to the EEC for aid from the Regional Fund for the financial year 1977–78: and what was the total aid received by Scotland from this source in each of the last three years.

Mr. Gregor MacKenzie

The Regional Fund operates in terms of calendar years, and during the last three years the total aid in respect of Scottish projects was as follows: 1975, £9.851 million; 1976, £14.607 million; 1977, £13.929 million. This aid covered a wide range of industrial and infrastructure projects. We are currently working on the first batch of applications for 1978.
