asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what was the total value of regional development grants and regional selective assistance grants awarded to businesses in Lancashire in 1987–88 and 1985–86 by district council area, indicating the number in each case.

The information provided in the table indicates offers of regional selective assistance made to companies in Lancashire in 1975–76 and 1985–86. It is not possible to provide details of assistance offered under old style regional development grant except at disproportionate cost. New regional development grant of £1,359,000 was offered to 52 companies in the West Lancashire district in 1985–86, which is the district in Lancashire with development area status and therefore eligible for regional development grant.
