asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how much money has been allocated under the European Economic Community regional fund to help with reclamation and development of derelict and industrial and urban sites in each year of the last five years.

No money has as yet been allocated under the non-quota section of the European regional development fund.Grant commitments approved under the quota section of the fund for industrial infrastructure developments in England are given below. Relatively few of these developments include the reclamation of derelict land but to distinguish those that do would involve the expenditure of disproportionate time and effort.Grants for such purposes elsewhere in the United Kingdom are the responsibility of my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
