§ Lord Melchett
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will state at 1982–83 prices by how much the Nature Conservancy Council requested its grant in aid be increased for 1982–83.
§ The Earl of Avon
As I indicated in my reply to the noble Lord on 11th February, the NCC asked for its grant-in-aid to be increased by between £950,000 and £1,130,000 at 1981–82 prices. At 1982–83 prices this would have represented an increase of approximately £1,025,000 to £1,220,000.
