§ 15. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish as a White Paper a summary of his discussions with the local authorities on the new method of calculating block grants before he announces the decisions of Her Majesty's Government on this subject.
§ Mr. J. N. Browne
It is the intention to present a White Paper as soon as the discussions with the local authority associations have been concluded. My right hon. Friend hopes that this will be before the Summer Recess.
