HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 c402W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales by how much in real terms the urban programme has risen since 1979; and if he will break this figure down by each of the Welsh counties.

Mr. Mark Robinson

Using the GDP deflator as a measure of inflation, between 1979–80 and 1985–86 the urban programme (including urban development grant) has risen by £18.5 million in real terms. This figure is broken down as follows:

Clwyd 3.31
Dyfed 1.28
Gwent 1.70
Gwynedd 0.59
Mid Glamorgan 3.93
Powys 0.14
South Glamorgan 6.00
West Glamorgan 1.53
