HC Deb 12 November 1987 vol 122 cc218-9W
Mr. Gale

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what assistance he intends to give the Thanet travel-to-work area in recognition of its serious economic problems; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Subject to the approval of the European Commission, it is my intention to make available up to £500,000 for the provision of business improvement services in the Thanet travel-to-work area. Support under the scheme will be available for a period of up to three years or until the funds run out, whichever is the sooner.
