HC Deb 31 October 1979 vol 972 c573W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will support the application of Knowsley council for a grant from the European Economic Community regional development fund for the establishment of a craft museum in Prescot.

Mr. King

No. In order to be eligible for aid from the European regional development fund projects of this type must make a significant contribution to the development of the local tourist industry. The Prescot museum project does not adequately satisfy this criterion.
