§ Mr. MacGregor
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what are the totals of sums made available to the United Kingdom from the EEC Regional Development Fund for 1975 to the latest convenient date and separately in the last financial year; and of these totals what sums have been made available for projects in Norfolk.
§ Mr. Cryer
Between the inception of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in 1975, and today, the Commission has agreed to contribute £194.1 million towards the costs of projects located in the United Kingdom assisted areas. Of this total £50.53 million was allocated in the financial year ending 31st March 1978. None has gone to projects in Norfolk since the ERDF can contribute to the costs of projects in assisted areas only.
