§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the total estimated rate support grant for Wales, analysed by element, for 1976–77 in line with global sums provided in line with Statutory Instrument for England and Wales, laid before Parliament on 5th December 1975.
§ Mr. Oakes
My best estimate of the total sums initially payable to local authorities in Wales under the Rate Support Grant Order 1975 are:
Needs element £207 million Domestic element £43 million
Resources element entitlements will depend on the rate poundages the authorities decide to levy for 1976–77.
