HC Deb 06 March 1986 vol 93 c204W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will now publish the figures of the Welsh water authority for (a) the total planned capital expenditure for 1986–87 and (b) the projected internal financial resources available for capital expenditure for 1986–87; and if he will compare both these to corresponding figures for 1985–86.

Mr. Mark Robinson

The Welsh water authority's total planned capital expenditure for 1986–87, as published in the recent Government's public expenditure White Paper (Cmnd. 9702), is £61 million; the projected internal resources are £45 million. The corresponding figures for 1985–86 were £53 million and £33 million respectively.
