§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how much of the second allocation of 1980 EEC social fund grants for United Kingdom employment training schemes is to be allocated to (a) Wolverhampton and (b) the West Midlands; and if he will list the schemes and the amounts involved in each case.
§ Mr. Jim Lester
A large proportion of the allocations made to the United Kingdom from the European social fund are in respect of schemes which operate nationally or in a number of parts of the country. It is therefore not possible to give information about total fund aid for schemes in particular areas or regions.
No scheme operating exclusively in the West Midlands has received an allocation in the second batch of allocations from the fund to the United Kingdom in 1980.
