HC Deb 24 May 1966 vol 729 c46W
42. Mr. Christopher Price

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will seek to arrange that the general grant to local authorities shall contain an element which will enable them to offset by increased grants the amount which grand-aided voluntary bodies pay in Selective Employment Tax.

Mr. Crossman

Some of these grants by local authorities are already taken into account in the general grant calculation, although the distribution of that grant to an individual authority is not directly related to its own expenditure.
