To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland which projects have to date attracted European Commission structural fund suppport, and how much.

To the end of 1989, Scotland has benefited from project awards1 of around £1,268 million from the European Community structural funds. Details of the individual funds are set out in the table:

£ million
European Regional Development Fund869
European Social Fund277
European Agricultural Guarantee and Guidance Fund122
1 These figures relate only to projects: the Structural Funds have also provided, through the Agricultural Guidance Fund, assistance to pre-funded schemes such as livestock subsidies—some £290 million between 1979 and 1988.
It is not practicable to list the projects individually because of the very large number which have been assisted.
