Better value for money? Britain's 1984 regional industrial policy package

M Chisholm

Abstract. The 1984 regional policy package is expected to save £300 million per annum compared with previous arrangements. An attempt is made to itemise the sources of this saving. It can be seen from the results that it is hard to reconcile the various stated expectations of Government. Discussion of certain data problems highlights deficiencies in the regular supply of information, and leads to the conclusion that when major policy changes occur it should be normal for explicit consideration to be given to the supply of information needed to monitor the operation of the new policy.
