In reply to a question from Rod Richards (Con Clwyd North West) Welsh Secretary John Redwood said he proposed to set total standard spending for Wales at £2,704 million in 1994-95.

He said the figure included the £86 million for care in the community announced by Under Secretary Wyn Roberts on 2 November.

'It represents an increase of 4.2% including community care resources or a 2.3% rise excluding care in the community. I propose to set central government support for TSS through aggregate external finance (AEF) at £2,419.2 million. The additional £86 million in community care resources the increase is 3.3% or 1.3% excluding care in the community.

'Within AEF I propose to make available £1,470 million in revenue support grant, £454 million in distributable non-domestic rates and £215.1 million in specific and supplementary grants. The non domestic rate poundage for 1994-95 will increase by 1.8% to 44.8% in the pound in line with the increase in the retail prices index for the 12 months to September 1993.'
