§ Mr. Gwynfor Evans
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will give an estimate of the cost in 1978–79 of the functions and services for which the Welsh Office has administrative responsibility, and of the cost of the Welsh nominated bodies during the same year.
§ Mr. John Morris
On the latest available information, expenditure in 1978–79 on functions and services for which I am responsible to Parliament will be about £876 million. Of this, some £508322W million will be spent by the nominated statutory and other bodies responsible to me for the administration of particular services.
