§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list all current grants, subsidies and other receipts from the European Communities for Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland; and if he will publish a table listing the main projects which benefit from such financial assistance.
§ Mr. Brooke
A breakdown of Community budget receipts by receiving departments (including the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland Officer) and by type of expenditure—for example, the regional development and social funds—is contained in table 3.3.3 of the last public expenditure White Paper, Cmnd. 9702-II, pages 62 to 65. Information concerning the precise breakdown of Community receipts by territorial areas could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
