Mr. Beith

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if guidelines have been issued for Enterprise grants and the revised form of regional selective assistance which came into operation on 1 January. [108505]

Mr. Caborn

[holding answer 7 February 2000]: The Government Offices and Business Links are currently distributing copies of the Enterprise Grant brochure (with application form) which provides applicants with details of the scheme's qualifying criteria, levels of grant and areas in which grant is available. Copies of the brochure have also been placed in the Libraries of the Houses. Regarding Regional Selective Assistance (RSA), new criteria will be issued when the Assisted Areas map is approved. Where interim arrangements for RSA applications are concerned, I refer the right hon. Member to the reply I gave to the right hon. Member for Caernarfon (Mr. Wigley) on 27 January 2000, Official Report, column 290W.
