§ 67. Mr. Bellingham
asked the Paymaster General how many applications have been made by local enterprise agencies for funding from his Department.
§ Mr. Trippier
No applications have been received from local enterprise agencies for funding under the new local enterprise agency grant scheme which comes into operation on 1 April 1986. However, 78 local enterprise agencies have been, or are currently being given, modest financial support under the existing pump-priming scheme run by my Department; this scheme introduced in February 1983 will cease on the introduction of the new grant scheme.
