HC Deb 16 July 1997 vol 298 c204W
11. Mr. Livsey

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will introduce a compensation package to offset revaluations of the green pound during 1997. [7005]

Mr. Win Griffiths

Paying this aid would have very significant implications for UK public expenditure. We are considering very carefully the case made by interested parties for payment, but we do have until 31 January 1998 to decide on the matter.
