HC Deb 25 March 1991 vol 188 cc292-3W
Mr. Alan Williams

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what element was included in his revenue support grant to cover statutory provisions relating to the Children Act 1989.

Mr. David Hunt

Revenue support grant is paid in support of expenditure on services generally and is not earmarked for particular services. In setting the level of total standard spending for Wales for 1991–92 account was taken of the local authority associations' view that the introduction of measures under the Children Act 1989 would cost £1.5 million in that financial year.
