asked the Secretary of State for Industry what assistance has been given by the Regional Fund of the European Economic Community to industrial projects (a) in the West Midlands and (b) in the area of the Birmingham district council, by parliamentary constituency; and if he will list those projects individually in the Official Report.

The European Regional Development Fund can contribute towards the costs of projects in assisted areas only with priority being given to those in the national priority areas, namely development areas and special development areas. So far no projects have been assisted in the Oswestry employment office area which is the only assisted area in the West Midlands.
