HC Deb 26 November 1973 vol 865 cc76-8W
Mr. Roderick

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will indicate the amount of grant given to support the citizens' advice bureaux in Wales in the past year ; and how this grant was distributed.

Sir G. Howe

I have been asked to reply.

Of the grant which my Department makes available through the National Council of Social Service, £114,000 is allocated this year for central services for citizens' advice bureaux in England and Wales. It is not possible to say how much of the total is used to benefit bureaux in Wales, either collectively or individually. The same is true of the grant of £34,380 provided by the Civil Service Department.
