§ 89. Mr. Allen Adams
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what specific steps he has taken to stimulate increased employment in the British textile industry.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
The provision of specific Government aids to the textile and clothing sectors is not permitted under present European community policy. Companies in these sectors can, however, apply for assistance under the Department's national schemes of support and also through its regional schemes aimed at projects safeguarding or creating new jobs.
