HC Deb 04 July 1985 vol 82 cc256-7W
Mr. Dewar

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the average cost per job created by regional development grants in Scotland in each of the last 10 years for which records are available.

Mr. Younger

Before the commencement of the new scheme in November last year such grants were not linked to jobs. 269 offers of regional development grant under the new scheme totalling £13.5 million in grant have been made in Scotland since 29 November 1984. The number of new jobs promised by these offers was 4,056.
