HC Deb 25 January 1972 vol 829 c387W
Mr. Kinnock

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what criteria his Department employs in determining distribution of capital expenditure between local authorities.

Mr. Graham Page

Capital allocations for locally determined schemes are determined by a formula based on various factors including actual payments in earlier years, population, housing development and non-domestic rateable value. The formula used for 1971–72 was set out in paragraph 23 of the D.O.E. Circular 2/70 (Welsh Office 116/70) and that for 1972–73 in a circular letter dated 28th September, 1970, a copy of which I am placing in the Library.
