HC Deb 15 July 1975 vol 895 c434W
Mr. Welsh

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what arrangements have been made concerning membership, meetings and subjects for discussion as far as the Working Party on Local Government Finance in Scotland is concerned.

Mr. William Ross

Following my meeting with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities on 25th April, the working party has been reconstituted, comprising officials nominated by the convention and representatives of Scottish Office. It met last month to consider local government expenditure, distribution of the rate support grants and financial planning by local authorities. Further meetings to continue discussion on these and other financial matters will be held as necessary.
