HC Deb 09 July 1979 vol 970 c89W
Mr. Allen McKay

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what action he intends to take to ensure that EEC regional and industrial aid to the steel industry will continue.

Mr. Michael Marshall

Applications by the United Kingdom steel industry for assistance under the appropriate schemes of the European Steel and Coal Community are made direct to the European Commission. No change in these arrangements is proposed. Applications for assistance from the European Regional Development Fund will continue to be submitted in respect of eligible steel industry projects.
