HC Deb 12 November 1991 vol 198 c448W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what financial support he has given to each of the counties of Wales in the last three years for capital and revenue expenditure on(a) roads and (b) public transport; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. David Hunt

By agreement with the local authority associations, the bulk of revenue and capital funding to individual local authorities is provided through revenue support grant and basic credit approvals. These are not hypothecated to particular services. As an exception to this rule, transport schemes costing over £5 million attract transport grant; total support in the last three financial years is as follows:

County 1989–90 (£000s) 1990–91 (£000s) 1991–92 (£000s)
Clwyd 558 1,207 938
Dyfed 3,982 1,463 2,704
Gwent 8,349 6,966 14,708
Gwynedd 281
Mid Glamorgan 8,031 9,737 14,536
South Glamorgan 6,760 8,757 22,973
West Glamorgan 11,738 22,780 10,780
Total 39,418 50,910 66,920
