HC Deb 08 February 1985 vol 72 c746W
Mr. Gordon Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) if he will consider introducing a similar grants scheme in Scotland to the management grants scheme operated under the special grants programme of the Department of the Environment in relation to local voluntary action;

(2) if he will produce a guide to grants for voluntary bodies working in environmental fields similar to that produced by the Department of the Environment.

Mr. Ancram

My right hon. Friend has already noted this proposal for consideration when his officials have completed a review of the exercise of powers to grant aid to such bodies in Scotland. Until a decision has been reached, it seems premature to consider the question of producing a guide to financial sources.
