§ Mr. Robert Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proportion of rebates to private sector tenants he estimates is to be met by a contribution of rates in the City of Aberdeen; and if he will express this as a rate at current poundage.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
This will depend on the outcome of our consultations with local authority associations. As was made clear in the statement in the House on 3rd November the Government will meet the greater part of the cost.
