§ 19. Sir David Knox
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what was the value of grants from his Department to voluntary organisations in the most recent year for which figures are available; and what were the figures for 1978–79 at constant prices. 
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
The latest available figure at outturn prices for direct grants is £14.1 million for 1993–94. The earliest financial year for which a directly comparable figure can be determined is 1988–89 when the equivalent expenditure at 1993–94 prices was £8.2 million.
