HC Deb 21 February 1995 vol 255 c113W
Mr. Alton

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what assessment Her Majesty's Government have made of the impact of DTI co-financed schemes in 1994 in Merseyside; when this will be available to the objective I partnership; and what improvements Her Majesty's Government are planning to introduce in the current year.

Mr. Jonathan Evans

[holding answer 20 February 1995]: No separate assessment of the impact of DTI co-financed schemes has been undertaken at this early stage of the objective 1 programme, although a progress report will be submitted to the monitoring committee in due course. There are no current plans for an enhancement of the additional support available through co-financing. DTI schemes are subject to on-going evaluation to ensure value for money.
