§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the decline in real terms of the rate support grant paid in Wales in 1984–85 since 1981–82.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
When 1981–82 figures are revalued to 1984–85, prices the decline is £65.7 million. If a 1981–82 price base is used, the decline is £56.35 million.
