§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will take steps to ensure that no finance allocated to Wales by the EC Commission will be lost by delays in processing paperwork in his office relating to such grant applications from Wales; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Redwood
Projects to take up the whole of the resources allocated to the Welsh structural funds programmes for the calendar years 1992 and 1993 have been identified by the relevant monitoring committees, and formal project approvals are now accelerating. I am confident that all the available structural funds grants will be committed to projects by the end of the year.
