§ Mr. Brittan
The amount of the Home Office grant to the NAVSS for 1983–84 is at present £20,000. I am glad to say that this is to be increased by £30,000 in 1984–85 and by a proportionate amount in the current year to enable additional staff and ofice accommodation to be provided as soon as possible. This will help the NAVSS to meet its growing commitments in support of the expanding network of voluntary victims support schemes throughout the country. The NAVSS will need to continue to look to other sources to meet a substantial proportion of its financial needs.
