HC Deb 12 July 1983 vol 45 c310W
Mr. Michael Forsyth

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list in the Official Report all the payments made in the last financial year by the Welsh Office to organisations and institutions associated with or representative of local government in Wales.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Six payments to the Welsh joint education committee totalling £159,942 were made during 1982–83. Payments are also made to bodies with more tenuous connections with local authorities, but to list these would involve the Department in a disproportionate cost in staff time and resources.
