HC Deb 05 June 1992 vol 208 c674W
Mr. Morgan

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what method he proposes to use to maximise policy co-ordination in reviewing policy and area boundaries and designation for regional policy purposes between Her Majesty's Government and the Commission of the European Communities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Sainsbury

The appropriate degree of coordination could best be assured if, in future, areas eligible for the European regional development fund were selected by the member states, subject to certain limits and conditions laid down in Council regulations.
