§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what proposals he has for the future funding of care and repair agency schemes; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Nicholas Bennett
Following the success of an experimental scheme, we plan that the resources available for associated local agencies will be increased to £360,000. This is almost double the current level of funding and forms part of an agreed support package covering the next five years. In addition grant aid of above £105,000 is envisaged in order to establish a developmental unit specifically for care and repair in the Principality.
