§ Mr. Richards
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what measures are being taken to ensure that Welsh local authorities correctly allocate and spend the money they are receiving to provide community care.
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
Additional resources for local authorities' new community care responsibilities are included in the 1993–94 Welsh local government revenue settlement. Within those totals, the amounts in respect of the new duties for each county council have been identified in accordance with their own wishes. The Welsh Office has worked closely with each local authority in the preparation of their social care plans and will continue to do so in monitoring progress on the Implementation of community care.
