§ Dr. Godman
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list the European Community objective 3 training allocations and amounts of assistance to be given to projects in(a) Inverclyde, (b) Strathclyde and (c) Scotland as a whole.
§ Miss Widdecombe
[holding answer 18 October 1994]: European social fund grants for objective 3 are allocated to projects through sector managers, operating at. Great Britain level, though in some sectors separate allocations for Scotland have been made at the outset.
Since the process of considering and approving applications for 1994 is still going on it is impossible as yet to give figures for the overall levels of assistance under objective 3 which will go to projects in Scotland as a whole or to projects in Strathclyde or Inverclyde.
