§ Sir Anthony Meyer
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list in the Official Report total receipts for Wales from each of the European Community funds and the amounts received in loans for projects in Wales from the European Coal and Steel Community, Euratom and the European Investment Bank since 1973.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
In terms of commitments, Wales has to date been allocated over £833 million in identifiable grants and loans from European Community sources. The details are as follows:
£ million European Regional Development Fund (grants) 117 European Coal and Steel Community (loans) 43 European Coal and Steel Community (grants) 250 European Social Fund (grants) 45 European Investment Bank (loans) 352 European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund (grants) 26 833
The total is a minimum figure. It does not include aid to Wales from national allocations which cannot be broken down on a regional basis. Some European social fund, EIB, ECSC and FEOGA moneys came into this category.
