asked the Secretary of State for Wales what additional expenditure on home improvement grants and home insulation grants in Wales he anticipates as a result of the Budget Statement.

Of the £100 million extra provision for home improvement grants and home insulation grants announced in the Budget Statement, the sum of £4·867 million is to be allocated to local authorities in Wales.I would expect the number of grants being made to increase significantly as advantage is taken of the increased rates for intermediate and repairs grants for the limited period to 31 December and also the new maximum limits for home insulation grants, but no firm estimate of additional expenditure is yet possible.
