HC Deb 22 March 1983 vol 39 c380W
Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how the current funding of the youth service compares with the funding since 1979; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. William Shelton

Total expenditure on the youth service in England amounted to some £73 million in 1979–80 and £93 million in 1981–82, much the same in real terms. The outturn for 1982–83 is not yet available.
