Mr. Brian Parkyn

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government, in view of the fact that the County of Bedford is one of the fastest growing areas in the country, to what extent the present rate of growth will be taken into consideration in the formula for the needs element in the new rate support grant.

Mr. Crossman

I must ask my hon. Friend to await the publication of the Local Government Bill.
