HC Deb 29 January 1971 vol 810 c226W
Mr. Nicholas Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement about future Government financial support for the Development Corporation for Wales.

Mr. Peter Thomas

I have decided to make available from 1st April, 1971, for each of the next three years a sum of up to £20,000 in support of the Development Corporation's work. The conditions applicable to the grant are being discussed with the Corporation but it is intended that a part of the grant will be related to the Corporation's income from sources other than the central government.
