§ Mr. David Marshall
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how much money he proposes to allocate in the financial years 1984–85 to 1989–90 for the establishment 461W and running costs of designated places under section 5 of the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 1980; and whether this allocation is separately identifiable.
§ Mr. John MacKay
The level of funding will depend on the number of grant applications received and approved. My Department is paying a capital grant of up to £150,000 to the sponsors of a designated place in Aberdeen which opened in September, and will meet the greater part of the running costs for three years from that date. Any further applications will be carefully considered.
