HC Deb 21 March 1989 vol 149 c578W
Mr. Frank Field

To ask the Secretary of State for Health when voluntary organisations will know the level of section 64 grants for the next financial year.

Mr. Freeman

We have received a large number of applications for new and renewal section 64 grants in 1989–90, the total of which far exceed the resources available. I am currently considering with my ministerial colleagues how resources are to be allocated and I expect to be able to notify organisations of their awards shortly.
