To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consider increasing the grant to Relate; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. John Patten
As I announced in my reply to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Esher (Mr. Taylor) on 15 November at column216, marriage guidance organisations, including Relate, will receive an increase of approximately 10 per cent. of their existing grants in aid for the next financial year.
