§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the amount spent in Wales per head on personal social services in the last year for which figures are available; and how such figures compare with England in general and with each of the English regions.
§ Mr. Mark Robinson
In 1983–84, the latest year for which outturn information is available, expenditure in Wales and England on personal social services was £42.73 and £39.49 per head respectively. I have arranged for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services, to supply the hon. Member with the information requested on personal social services expenditure in each of the English regions.
