asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will revise the amount of rate support grants in Wales in 1981–82 to take account of the additional costs of the pay increase awarded to the police in September 1981.

Subject to Parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate, the cash limit on rate support grants in Wales in 1981–82—Class XVIII, Vote 2—is being increased by £536,000 from £744,500,000 to £745,036,000. This will be reflected in the first rate support grant supplementary report for this year which I will be shortly laying before this House.
