§ Mr. David Reed
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list, by Standard Industrial Classification, the numbers of offers of Industry Act selective financial assistance in the Northern Region since August 1972; and if he will estimate the number of jobs accruing under each classification.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
The information requested up to 30th November 1973 is set out in the following table:
million grant on plant and machinery in the Northern Region, and £4 million grant in respect of building work in the Northern Region and the Yorkshire and Humberside Region. A total of 5,898 applications had been received by the office. An analysis of these payments by Standard Industrial Classification is not readily available. An analysis by SIC order of grant paid in the assisted areas as a whole is included in the Annual Report on the Industry Act 1972.
