EU Committees

Angus Robertson: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many times during the (a) Italian, (b) Irish and (c) Dutch Presidency of the EU the (i) Customs Co-operation Committee-EEC-San Marino, (ii) EEC-Denmark-Faroe Islands Joint Committee and (iii) European Economic Area Joint Committee met; when and where each meeting took place; what UK Government expert was present at each meeting; and if he will make a statement. [216220]

Dawn Primarolo: This information is not readily available, because these committees are the province of the European Commission, and member states' officials do not attend.

European Investment Bank Loans

Adam Price: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list projects during the last five years for which Treasury approval has been granted for European Investment Bank Loans in response to applications from (a) the National Assembly for Wales, (b) the Scottish Executive, (c) the Northern Ireland Executive, (d) local authorities in England, (e) local authorities in Wales, (f) NHS trusts in England and (g) NHS trusts in Wales. [215475]

Mr. Boateng: The European Investment Bank's lending decisions are a matter for the Bank and the individual project promoters. The promoters submit potential projects, which are then assessed by the Bank against its lending criteria. Based on this assessment, the Bank's Board of Directors decide whether or not to approve an individual project.

Under its Statute, the European Investment Bank has to ask for an opinion from the Government of the member state in which the project will take place.

European Investment Bank loans do not readily break down into the categories requested. Listed in the following table are loans to UK projects approved in the last five years by the European Investment Bank, broken down by UK region. Details of lending to the UK broken down by sector are available on the EIB website
