HC Deb 15 May 1995 vol 260 c30W
Mr. Wray

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will instruct(a) the overseas project board and (b) the regional industrial development board to issue an annual report before Parliament. [24190]

Mr. Needham

I shall ensure that any annual report published by the overseas projects board is made available in the Library of the House.

There are seven regional industrial boards covering the 10 English regions. They are non-statutory boards but by tradition each board contributes an annual commentary for inclusion in the annual reports of the Industrial Development Act 1982, copies of which are in the Library of the House.
