§ Mr. John Evans
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what is the total amount of grants for industrial development that the Government have paid out in each of the last 10 years in Newton-le-Willows; and if he will list each category of grant.
§ Mr. Cryer
No selective financial assistance under the Industry Act 1972 has been made available in the Newton-le-Willows employment office area. I regret that information about investment grants and regional development grants is not readily available and could not be obtained without disproportionate cost and the slowing down of grant payments due to the diversion of staff in computing the amount.
