§ 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.
