§ Mr. Sweeney
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has to review the way in which his Department assists local support services for voluntary organisations. 
§ Mr. Richards
I have today issued a consultation paper seeking comments on the effectiveness of current arrangements for delivering support services to voluntary organisations at local level. The paper also seeks views on the best way of channelling support from the Welsh Office to the organisations providing such services. I shall welcome comments from voluntary organisations throughout Wales, from those who have links with the voluntary sector and from the organisations which the Department currently funds. A copy of the consultation paper has been placed in the Libraries of the House.
