§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Prime Minister if she will make a statement on co-ordination between the Department of Trade and Industry and the Welsh Office on the Government's submission to the European Economic Community entitled "United Kingdom Regional Development Programme 1986–1990", in so far as it relates to the economy of Wales.
§ The Prime Minister
"Section 8 — Wales" of the United Kingdom regional development programme 1986–90 was compiled by the Welsh Office on the basis of submissions from local and public authorities in Wales, together with largely statistically based information held within the Department. The Department of Trade and Industry co-ordinated the preparation of the full programme document, in consultation with all interested Departments, including the Welsh Office.
