asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection what was the total sum granted to non-statutory organisations in each of the years 1973–74, 1974–75, 1975–76, 1976–77; what is the size of the grants budgeted for 1977–78, 1978–79 and 1979–80; and if he will detail them.

Grants made by my Department to bodies not established by statute were as follows:

Part APart B
Size ofNet Weekly Income in £p
" Size of family" means the number of dependent children in the family who have not attained the age of 19.
For families which have more than six dependent children under the age of 19:
(a) £7·40 is to be added at each incremental point in every additional line, and
(b) £1·25 is to be deducted at each incremental point in every additional column.
Where the net weekly income of the parent of a family of any size specified in Part A is less than any amount shown in the corresponding entry in Part B, the number of children entitled to free school meals is as given at the head of the column in Part B showing the lowest amount in that entry which exceeds that income.

The figures for these years are out—turn prices. For the year 1977–78 the amount of grant payable is expected to be no less than for 1976–77. A final decision has not yet been taken for the years after 1978.
