To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the technical meeting between his officials and those of the regional development directorate of the European Commission in relation to the supply of information material to the Welsh Office reduced grant in aid to the Welsh Development Agency and the additionality principle. 
§ Mr. Hague
[holding answer 19 October 1995]: I am pleased to say that the Commission has now accepted that European structural funds are properly spent in Wales and has released all previously blocked resources. Agreement has also been reached on improving the presentation of European regional development fund support made to the WDA and other public bodies in Wales.
