HC Deb 04 July 1995 vol 263 c104W
Miss Hoey

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many voluntary sector organisations her Department has(a) paid grants to or (b) entered into contracts with in (i) 1993–94 and (ii) 1994–95; and what was the total value of these grants and contracts. [31309]

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.
