asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether any further tranches of European regional development fund non-quota funds are to be made available to Humberside; what sums will be allocated to Glanford and Scunthorpe from that source by his Department; and if he will make a statement.

[pursuant to his reply, 1 April 1985, c. 469]: There may be further ERDF non-quota aid for steel industry areas, but as yet there are no specific arrangements.The European Commission has also published proposals for ERDF non-quota aid for areas where fisheries activities have declined, under which £7·4 million would be allocated to the United Kingdom in respect of Hull and Grimsby. However, it is not clear when these proposals will be considered by the Council.It is not possible at this stage to say how much from either possible sources of aid would go to Glanford and Scunthorpe.
