asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, since his letter of 30 October 1984 to the hon. Member for Glasgow, Maryhill, what further consideration his Department has given to the conclusion in the report on the social and economic situation in the regions of the European Community (second periodic review), ranking Strathclyde and Dumfries and Galloway as ninth in the Commission's group one priority.

As was explained in the correspondence referred to, the second periodic report is an analysis of regional problems in the Community and does not itself form a basis for re-assessment of the Community's current priorities.
