HC Deb 09 February 1979 vol 962 cc321-2W
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 £508 million will be spent by the nominated statutory and other bodies responsible to me for the administration of particular services.
