§ Jackie Ballard
To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) if he will list the amounts of funding provided, by each authority area, for AIDS support for(a) 1997–98, (b) 1998–99 and (c) 1999–2000; 
(2) if he will make a statement on the allocation of the AIDS support grant for 1999–2000. 
§ Ms Jowell
The level of AIDS Support Grant to local authorities for 1999–2000 will be £15.5 million (an increase of almost 12 per cent. on 1998–99) and the planning figures for 2000–01 and 2001–02 are £16 million and £16.5 million respectively. We expect to announce the 1999–2000 AIDS Support Grant allocations to local authorities shortly.
Information on the amounts of funding provided, by each authority area, for AIDS Support Grant for 1997–98 and 1998–99 has been placed in the Library.
