HC Deb 21 November 1995 vol 267 c77W
Mr. David Porter

To ask the President of the Board of Trade when he next expects to review the assisted areas map; if he will accept interim submissions from areas excluded in the last review; and if he will make a statement. [227]

Mr. Eggar

The Government have no plans to review the assisted areas map during this Parliament. The European Commission imposes an overall ceiling on the percentage of working population covered by the assisted areas map. It is not possible to review the status of individual areas outside a full review.
