Business: Government Assistance

Volume 471: debated on Friday 1 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform which UK enterprises that have received state aid are registered on the European Commission's state aid scoreboard. (181762)

The scoreboard is the Commission's benchmarking instrument for state aid, providing a transparent and publicly accessible source of information on the overall state aid situation in each of the EU member states and on the Commission's current state aid control activities. Thus all the state aid received by enterprises across the EU is reflected in the scoreboard, but it does not provide details of state aid received by individual enterprises.
