§ Mr. Sweeney
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the grant awards for 1995–96 made under the child and family services grant scheme; what were the figures for 1994–95; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Richards
I am pleased to announce that grant offers totalling £2.635 million have been made for 1995–96. This compares with an equivalent figure of £2.1 million in the current financial year. This represents a 25 per cent. increase and reflects the Government's commitment to family life and values. Details of the 84 grant awards have been placed in the Library of the House.
