§ Mr. Arnold
asked the Prime Minister what steps she takes to monitor the extent to which each Government Department takes up the European Community grants available to it; and what percentage of such grants were taken up in the last year.
§ The Prime Minister
[pursuant to her reply, 9 June 1986, c. 40–41]: I regret that the figure given for the United Kingdom share of agricultural guidance receipts was incorrect. The table shows the percentage share of United Kingdom receipts from the main Community funds.
Per cent. Agricultural Guarantee 9.4 Agricultural Guidance 16.1 European Social Fund (ESE) 30.8 European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 28.9
The latest estimate of total United Kingdom receipts in 1985 (excluding budget funds and abatements) is £1,908 million.
