§ Mr. Ashley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what are the average budgets of community health councils in Wales; and if he will estimate the change in the value of these budget allocations, in real terms, over the last five years.
§ Mr. Mark Robinson
The overall allocation for 1986–87 is £550,000 which represents an average budget of £25,000 per community health council in Wales. This provides growth of 7.9 per cent. over the last five years after adjustment for inflation.
