§ 35. Mr. Snow
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what grants will be available to rating authorities in Lichfield City, Lichfield Rural District Council, the borough of Tamworth and the urban district of Rugeley, respectively, in respect of old people under Clause 1 of the Rating (Interim Relief) Bill.
§ Mr. Corfield
Preliminary estimates of the amounts which will be payable under Clause 1 of the Bill are £1,130 to Lichfield Rural District Council and £1,810 to Tamworth Borough Council. These estimates are based on data for 1961, when the other two authorities had fewer than 10 per cent. of their population over the age of 65. The estimates are subject to correction on later information.
