asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list the grants made by the European Commission and the value of each one in pounds sterling out of the Social Fund to support projects in Derbyshire in each of the years since 1973.

Allocations of £40,383 in 1977 and £44,356 in 1978 were made from the European Social Fund towards the cost of setting up and running a centre in Derbyshire for the retraining of the unemployed.During the period from 1973 to date the United Kingdom has also received allocations from the fund in respect of operations run by public authorities covering Great Britain as a whole. A proportion of these would relate to operations in Derbyshire, but I regret that it is not possible to calculate the amount of the proportion.
