To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the organisations to which he has given (a) an increase in grant and (b) a decrease in grant in 1990–91 compared with 1989–90 under the system of grants to voluntary organisations working in the field of homelessness together with the actual change and percentage change in each case; and if he will make a statement.

Our Department has given substantial increases in grant to the three voluntary organisations which tackle homelessness on a strategic level. Not including any supplementary grants given in 1989–90, the figures are as follows:
