§ Mr. Beith
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in view of the fact that the project to replace the Twizell bridge, Northumberland, cannot benefit from the European regional development fund after 1 August, he will ensure that Northumberland county council's application to the fund for this project is put before the appropriate European Economic Community authorities by his Department without delay.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
My right hon. Friend will give serious consideration to including this project in our submission to the Commision in July, in the light of the other projects available to be put forward and the Commission's criteria for acceptance.
