HC Deb 23 November 1979 vol 974 cc372-3W
Mr. Millan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give a breakdown of the cash limit of £194 million which he has fixed for rate support grant in 1980–81 showing the amounts included for inflation, the amounts included for each category of local government employer in respect of the Clegg Commission comparability awards and the percentage increases in wages and salaries he has assumed to be granted in each case by the Clegg Commission for the purposes of fixing the cash limit.

Mr. Younger

The cash limit for rate support grant in Scotland in 1980–81 of £194 million is compatible with increases in local authority costs, resulting from price changes and new pay settlements of 13 per cent. between 1979–80 and 1980–81 Separate provision has been made for an increase in total costs resulting from comparability awards. There are no figures for individual pay settlements.
