HC Deb 23 May 1990 vol 173 c245W
32. Mr. Burns

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment by what amount funding for the Countryside Commission has increased since 1979.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

Subject to the approval of Parliament, we propose to increase the Countryside Commission's grant-in-aid to £25.136 million in 1990–91. This represents an increase in real terms of 112 per cent. over the allocation of £5.6 million in 1979–80.
