NINE PROJECTS in three nationalised industries have been approved under Section 8 of the 1974 Railways Act.
Transport Under Secretary John Horam said that the Coal Board had three — grant aid committed was £2,152,000 — British Steel five (£1,489,000) and British Leyland one (£253,000). Two applications from the CEGB were under consideration.
The Government was anxious that all industries including the nationalised sector, should take full advantage of the scheme, noted Mr Horam.
