HC Deb 26 November 1984 vol 68 c345W
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.
