HC Deb 16 February 1999 vol 325 c683W
Mr. Berry

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what amounts in his Department's budget for 1998–99 can be attributed to spending on disabled people; and what proportion this represents of total departmental spending. [71281]

Mr. Michael

Welsh Office expenditure on programmes targeted at supporting people with learning disabilities, physical and sensory disabilities and mental health problems totalled £46.6 million in 1998–99. Other expenditure related to people with disabilities is incurred in other programmes and by the Department as an employer but this is a normal and integral aspect of business which is not separately identified. For this reason the full proportion of departmental spending on people with disabilities cannot be identified.
