HC Deb 16 January 1991 vol 183 c538W
Mr. Worthington

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if his community care policy for the mentally ill includes an increase in the provision of capital resources for either local authorities or voluntary organisations.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

Capital grant amounting to 196,000 has been made available in the present financial year to voluntary organisations developing mental health services. This compares with £143,500 in 1989–90. Final decisions have yet to be taken on the allocation of capital grant for 1991–92.
