Mr. John David Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what was the total amount received in Northern Ireland from the first programme of the non-quota section of the European Community regional development fund by (a) shipbuilding districts and (b) border districts.
§ Dr. Boyson
Under the first shipbuilding measure, some 1.7 million was made available to Northern Ireland, of which £1.1 million has been received to date.
The first border areas measure made available some £4.5 million of which £2.8 million has so far been received.
Final claims under both measures, which expired at the end of 1985, will be submitted to the Commission during the current year.
