(2) if he will list all (a) direct and (b) indirect financial support given by statutory agencies to British Eagle cycle company in respect of its business in Newtown; and if he will make a statement. [15231]

Mr. Hague

The Development Board for Rural Wales is the only statutory agency to have given support to British Eagle Cycles. I have asked the chief executive of the board to write to the hon. and learned Member with the information requested and I will arrange for a copy of his reply to be placed in the Library of the House.
