Q20 Alison Halford:

What discussions has the First Minister had with the North Wales Economic Forum about its application to the European Union innovative actions programme? (OAQ12154)

The First Minister:

I have had no such discussions. However, following the proposals outlined in the consultation paper, ‘Towards A Sustainable Wales’, an independent steering committee was established—including representatives from the public, private and voluntary sectors—to prepare the Welsh application for funding under this new European programme. The Deputy First Minister has written separately to the chairs of the skills group and the competitive business group at the North Wales Economic Forum about their project proposal.
