§ Mr. Boswell
[holding answer 28 February 1995]: In 1993–94, the running costs of the youth service unit amounted to £382,000. It is anticipated that the costs in 1994–95 will be roughly £435,000. The unit's budget for 1995–96 has not yet been fixed. These figures reflect changes in the functions of the unit from year to year.
