To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what has been the northern region's percentage share of European regional development fund grants made to the United Kingdom so far during 1987; and if he will make a statement.

[holding answer 9 November 1987]: The northern region's percentage share of ERDF grants made to the United Kingdom so far during 1987 is 0ยท7 per cent. The figure is, however, misleading, in that only about half this year's grants have so far been announced. Further grants for the northern region are expected. Grant decisions rest with the European Commission.
