§ Dr. Godman
asked the Paymaster General what is the latest estimate of the cost of the restart scheme in (a) Great Britain, (b) Scotland, (c) Strathclyde region and (d) Greenock and Port Glasgow.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
[pursuant to his reply, 26 February 1987, c. 339]: We estimate that in 1986–87 the cost of the restart programme in Great Britain will be around £53 million. The estimated cost for Scotland is around £5.5 million. It is not possible to make a reliable estimate of the cost of the restart programme in either the Strathclyde region or Greenock and Port Glasgow.
