§ Mr. Crouch
asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether a contribution towards the cost of the improvement of roads to Europe is being met from EEC funds.
§ Mr. William Rodgers
No applications have so far been made for aid from the European Regional Development Fund for trunk roads in England, though applications for a large number of more local road projects have been submitted and approved for grant. These grants are at present available only for projects in assisted areas.
