HC Deb 09 July 1968 vol 768 cc54-5W
Mr. MacArthur

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what total sum will be granted in 1968–69 to local authorities in Scotland for fulfilling their civil defence duties; and what further sum they will be allowed to spend out of their rate income for this purpose.

Mr. Ross

I expect that in respect of civil defence measures taken by local authorities in Scotland this year specific grants of the order of £320,000 may be payable, and that the expenditure on account of rates and rate support grant may amount to approximately £80,000.
