HC Deb 16 December 1999 vol 341 cc303-4W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what meeting he has held in the last three months with Ministers from the Treasury to discuss Objective 1 match funding for Wales.[102168]

Mr. Paul Murphy

I have had a number of meetings and discussions with Treasury colleagues when we have discussed Objective 1 funding.

We have also arranged for officials at the Treasury to work with officials from my Department, and the National Assembly, to look at the issues of Objective 1 funding as preparation for the next Spending Review, which is due to get under way in the new year.
