HC Deb 26 February 1964 vol 690 cc97-8W
Mr. W. Clark

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a list of all local authorities which it is expected will qualify for a grant under Clause 1 of the Rating (Interim Relief) Bill, 1964, estimated to amount to £6,500,000; and what amount each will receive.

Sir K. Joseph

As I informed the House on 16th December last, in reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Islington, North (Mr. Reynolds), over 1,200 authorities are expected to qualify and I do not think it would be justifiable to include a list of that length in the OFFICIAL REPORT. But I shall be glad to give my hon. Friend information about any particular area in which he is interested.
