HC Deb 23 May 1978 vol 950 cc507-8W
Mr. Cant

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether, in view of its effectiveness, he will give further publicity to his Department's selective investment scheme before the closing date of 30th June 1978.

Mr. Cryer

A wide range of promotional channels for the selective investment scheme are being used. To date, we have offered assistance towards 65 projects involving investment of £260 million, and more than 160 proposals are currently being examined. There is still scope for companies to apply. I hope that as many companies as possible will do so, but I will certainly consider my hon. Friend's suggestion of further publicity.
