§ Mr. Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales whether he approved, either in principle or in detail the £500,000 loan from South Glamorgan health authority to Gwynedd health authority in 1990–91.
§ Mr. Grist
I am not aware that the South Glamorgan health authority has entered into an arrangement to lend money to any health authority in 1990–91. However, in 1989–90 South Glamorgan health authority made available £0.5 million to Gwynedd health authority under normal inter-year cash management arrangements. The loan was mutually agreed by the two authorities and the Department made the necessary cash limit adjustments to give effect to the loan and to its repayment in the current financial year.
