May I, first, say to my hon. Friend that when I was in his constituency recently I was impressed by the buoyant mood of business men there. As he knows, his constituency qualifies under the part of the fund for the midlands uplands programme. I welcome the fact that some of that money will go to his constituency.
The availability of those funds is fairly widely publicised, and from time to time we consult local authorities and others to see whether further measures need to be taken.
