asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how much has been paid out in grant each year from the Alvey fund; and what proportion was allocated to projects in Northern Ireland.

Total payments under the Alvey programme from the Department of Trade and Industry, the Ministry of Defence and the Science and Engineering Research Council were £4·2 million in 1983–84 and £14·6 million in 1984–85.None of the recipient companies or academic institutions was located in Northern Ireland.
