asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he is yet able to reply to the Wales Trades Union Congress's request for Government aid towards the establishment of a co-operative development centre in Wales.

I have offered the Wales TUC a contribution of £100,000 towards the establishment of its proposed co-operative development centre subject to its obtaining a comparable level of support from the European Social Fund. I anticipate making an initial contribution during this financial year towards the setting up costs of the centre and a further three annual contributions thereafter. These will, however, be dependant upon my receiving from the Wales TUC satisfactory progress reports on the work being undertaken by the centre.
