§ 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:
£m 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
