To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what was the value of grants from his Department to voluntary organisations in each of the past three years.
The latest available figures, at outturn prices, are £8·96 million in 1987–88, £9·35 million in 1988–89 and £11·66 million in 1989–90, a real terms increase of some 14 per cent. over the period.
