§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
Net commitments for 1981, 1982 and 1983 were £24.8 million, £47.3 million and £45.1 million respectively. Commitments in the current year to date are £31.3 million.
§ Mr. Edwards
Undoubtedly those very large sums have been of great value in helping us to fund the kinds of infrastructure improvements that Opposition Members have been urging this afternoon. The total indentifiable Community commitment so far, including the European 425 regional development fund and all the other forms of assistance, amounts to well over £1,330 million. That is a very substantial sum.
