§ Mr. Donald Stewart
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what procedures are used in making local authorities aware of any grants for which they may be eligible from EEC funds.
§ Mr. Millan
A variety of measures, depending upon the degree of local authority involvement in particular funds, is used by the Government Departments concerned to inform local authorities of any grants for which they may be eligible. These measures include the issue of departmental circulars and Press notices, discussions with local authority associations and meetings with individual authorities or groups of authorities. Publicity is also given by the EEC Commission to the availability of funds.
