§ Mr. Bowis
The Department makes a large number of grants to voluntary organisations, the main channel being the section 64 general scheme. For details of grants given in 1993–94 and 1994–95 I refer the hon. Member to the reply that I gave to the hon. Member for Clwyd, South-West (Mr. Jones) on 20 June at column205.
The Department does not normally enter into contractual arrangements for services with voluntary organisations.
