asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will take steps to provide additional financial resources to the East Dyfed health authority, the Pembrokeshire health authority and the Dyfed county council to provide services for the elderly in the light of the report by the hospital advisory service and the social work service published on 7 June; and if he will make a statement.

Since 1979–80 we have provided the health authorities in the county of Dyfed with over £10 million in revenue growth funds, a 19·1 per cent. increase, together with 26·7 per cent. of the growth funds available in that period for psychiatric development in Wales. Additionally, nearly £13·5 million has been allocated in Welsh Office support towards joint finance projects. The great majority of the health advisory service's report recommendations require action by the health and social services authorities in Dyfed, and I look forward to their considered response.
