HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 cc199-200W
82. Mr. Bevins

asked the Minister of Health the amount of the equalisation grants paid to the Durham County Council for 1949–50 and 1950–51; and whether he will consider exercising the powers conferred upon him to reduce such grants by Section (6) of the Local Government Act, 1948.

Mr. Bevan

The equalisation grant payable to Durham County Council for each of the years 1949–50 and 1950–51 is estimated to be £2,803,509. I have at present no evidence that conditions exist which would justify action under Section 6 of the Act.
