HC Deb 18 April 1988 vol 131 cc350-1W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list the amounts of regional development grants in Lancashire in each year since 1975; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

It is not possible to provide figures in respect of the "old" regional development grant scheme because information was not maintained by individual areas.

The following regional development grants have been offered to businesses in the west Lancashire district, which is the area in Lancashire with development area status and eligible for regional development grant :

1984–85 12,000
1985–86 1,405,422
1986–87 2,742,827
1987–88 7,150,822
