To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what financial support he is providing to child refugees in Cardiff.

Refugee matters are the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary. Services provided by health and local authorities are not in general differentiated by status of user and it is not possible separately to identify funding provided by the Department for services to child refugees from wider support for services for children. Urban programme funding of some £394,000 has however been approved in South Glamorgan since 1989–90 for projects directed towards the needs of refugees; it is likely that children will have benefited.
