HC Deb 13 July 1979 vol 970 c327W
Mr. George Robertson

(2) how much less aid will be available to Welsh industry in the current financial year as a result of the deferment of regional development grants.

Mr. David Mitchell,

pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 9 July 1979; Vol. 970, c. 91], gave the following answer:

It is estimated that deferment will postpone payment of about £25 million of regional development grants to Welsh industry for the current financial year.
