HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 c444W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has made concerning the non-availability of low-interest European Coal and Steel Community loans for industrial development in Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

Representations have been made to the Commission of the European Communities about the suspension of new ECSC loans business and I am awaiting the outcome of urgent discussions now in progress.
