asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will introduce a scheme to bring redundant rural buildings into productive use.

I have approved a new scheme of grants which will be operated by the Welsh Development Agency and the Development Board for Rural Wales. Grants will be available in rural areas at the discretion of the agency and the board up to a maximum rate of 35 per cent. of the cost of converting redundant buildings for use by craft industry, light industry or service industries promoting or supporting tourism, craft industry or light industry. Full details of the scheme are available from the agency and the development board.
