§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales when he received a copy of the Audit Commission report entitled "Rhondda Borough Council: Audit of Accounts of 1993–94 Renovation Grants—Report of Investigations into the Operation and Management of the System and on the Results of Investigations into Alleged Irregularities"; and what action he plans to take. 
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
The Welsh Office received a copy of the report from Rhondda borough council on 22 June.
Under part VIII of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989, local authorities are charged with the administration of the renovation grants scheme. It is for the council to act on the findings of the district auditor's report and to implement the agreed recommendations. Papers have been passed to the police. The Welsh Office will keep in close touch with the district auditor about any implications for the payment of Government subsidy.
