HC Deb 02 May 1985 vol 78 c210W
3. Mr. Ashton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will provide grants to local victim support schemes for travel, postage and printing expenses.

Mr. Mellor

My right hon. and learned Friend has no plans to provide grants for this purpose. We have a high regard for the work of victim support schemes, but they should be able to look to their local communities to finance their incidental expenses.
