§ Mr. Brandon-Bravo
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he will list those with whom he has considered the benefits of providing a city grant to assist the redevelopment of the Raleigh site in the inner city area of Nottingham; and whether the case for facilitating an export-led expansion of the company's activities has been taken into account;
(2) if, when considering the city grant application from Raleigh Industries, Nottingham, he will make it his policy to take into account both the normal employment criteria and its overall impact on the relocation and development of this site.
§ Mr. Trippier
The Department has not received an application in respect of the Raleigh site. If an application is received it will be fully appraised in the usual way, taking into account both the direct employment implications and the wider urban regenerative impact on inner Nottingham.
