Miss Hoey

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many voluntary sector organisations his Department has(a) paid grants to or (b) entered into contracts within (i) 1993–94 and (ii) 1994–95; and what was the total value of these grants and contracts. [31298]

Mr. Richards

In 1993–94 369 voluntary organisations in Wales received grants totalling £18.6 million from the Welsh Office, mainly in direct funding, although some indirect grants are also included. Details of outturn expenditure for 1994–95 will be available shortly and I will write to the hon. Lady.

Details of the number of voluntary organisations contracting with the Welsh Office and the value of these contracts are as follows:

Year Number Amount £
1993–94 44 543,100
1994–95 51 672,940
