Scottish Secretary Ian Lang announced in a written answer that he is to take responsibility for European Social Fund expenditure in Scotland under Objectives 1, 2 and 5b of the new regulations.

He said that at present he is responsible for expenditure under Objectives 2 and 5b of the European Structural Funds financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund. But, he does not control the European Social Fund expenditure which is run by the Department of Employment.

The changes will see the DE giving up this responsibility under Objectives 1,2 and 5b.
