To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will place in the Library an explanatory note and any other relevant documents setting out the terms on which the Commission of the European Communities approved the designation of the Inverclyde enterprise zone.

[holding answer 27 February 1990]: In accordance with usual procedures, the Government's intention to create a new enterprise zone in Inverclyde and the European Commission's decision to raise no objection to the proposed measure were dealt with in an exchange of letters between the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Commission of the European Communities. It is not normal practice to publish such correspondence. The Commission's approval was subject to the standard terms and conditions regarding observance of the Community rules and regulations applicable to such measures.
