There are concerns over Wales will be able to spend the£2,000m which most of the country expects to win from the European Union, reported The Western Mail (12 Dec, p5).

The money will come from Objective 1 funding but a meeting in Newport was told last week that there would be tight controls on what the money can be spent on - new roads, for example, are unlikely to be eligible.

The meeting of the South Wales Consortium of Local Authorities was told that dual-carriageways and new industrial estates are out and that new innovation and new technology are in.

Kevin Morgan, of the department of city and regional planning at Cardiff University, said Wales had to be innovative to make use of all the cash available.
