§ Mr. Foulkes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will seek from the chairman of the Scottish Development Agency information about grants or loans awarded by the agency over the past six months to individuals whose financial affairs had at the time been put in trust; if he will publish details in the Official Report; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart
[pursuant to his reply, 14 March 1985, c. 446]: I understand that the Scottish Development Agency would not award a grant or loan to an individual whose financial affairs it knew to have been placed in trust. Nor is the agency aware of any case where a grant or loan was awarded to an individual whose financial affairs were discovered subsequently to have been in trust at the time of the award.
