HC Deb 08 March 1978 vol 945 c647W
Mr. Hicks

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list those projects in Cornwall that have been grant-aided, together with the actual amounts, from the Guidance Section of the EAGGF under Regulation 17/64/ EEC for each year since 1973.

Mr. Bishop

Details of the grants approved are as follows:

Year Description of project Aid awarded
1975 Construction of a new jetty and fish market at Newlyn 165,400
1976 Expansion of facilities for making and storing cheese at a factory at Davidstow 108,744
1976 Construction of a fishing vessel to be based in Cornwall 72,440
1977 Construction of a fishing vessel to be based at Falmouth 22,212
1977 Provision of fish processing and storage facilities at Madron 26,234
1977 Modernisation and development of processing facilities at a slaughterhouse near Truro 81,662

No grants were approved for projects in Cornwall in 1973 or 1974, but grants of £850,983 and £2,129,010 respectively were awarded in these years for bulk milk installations in England and Wales. It is not, however, possible to apportion the benefit to fanners in Cornwall from these grants.
