§ Mr. George Robertson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what criteria he used in deciding (a) to make offers under regional development grant headings to the Burroughs Corporation and (b) not to make offers to Northern Engineering Industries, in respect of Reyrolle Belmos Blantyre; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Lang
The criteria used when considering applications for regional development grant under the Industrial Development Act 1982 (as amended) are the same in all cases. These criteria are published in the regional development grant guide for applicants.
No recent applications have been received by the Department from either company.
