HC Deb 21 May 1979 vol 967 c68W
Mr. Pawsey

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals he has for alterations in local government finance, so to reintroduce the weighting in favour of the shire counties which existed before 1974.

Mr. King

We are giving active consideration to the present system of local government finance and have in mind the concern expressed over the weighting between the various areas.
