HC Deb 27 January 1993 vol 217 cc734-5W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will increase his allocation of cash to local authorities in Wales for funding of citizen's advice bureaux budgets; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Hunt

The local authority revenue settlement covers all local authority expenditure. It is for individual authorities to decide how to apportion those resources between and within services in accordance with their statutory obligations and their own priorities. I will shortly be presenting my final proposals for the 1993–94 settlement for the approval of the House.
