HC Deb 05 June 1991 vol 192 c247W
Ms. Mowlam

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry which projects involving European Community funding in the Cleveland county area since 1987 have involved additionality costs to the United Kingdom Exchequer.

Mr. Leigh

In setting the Government's public expenditure programmes, account is taken of expected receipts from the European Community. This enables the programmes to be larger than they otherwise would be.
