HC Deb 09 March 1976 vol 907 cc194-5W
Mr. Emlyn Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether it is intended to provide a formula for the proposed Welsh Assembly to follow in its distribution of the block grant.

Mr. John Morris

No. The devolution White Paper (Command 6348) makes it clear that the Welsh Assembly will have the fullest possible freedom to decide how the block grant should be spent.
