§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make available extra funding for community care in 1993–94; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
I refer the hon. Gentleman to my announcement of 2 October that £35.9 million will be made available to local authorities in 1993–94 to meet the cost of their new responsibilities for community care. This includes the Department of Social Security transfer of £27.5 million, with a further £8.4 million for additional costs.
