§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many projects in Wales to date are covered by urban development grants; how much public expenditure is involved in the current financial year; and how much is committed in future years.
§ Mr. John Stradling Thomas
Since the introduction of the urban development grant scheme in April 1982, 28 projects throughout Wales have been the subject of grant aid approvals or offers in principle. On current estimates6W the grant aid involved would be about £5 million in the present financial year, with £3 million remaining committed for 1985–86.
