HC Deb 13 November 1980 vol 992 cc469-70W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will state the number of new dwellings program- med for completion as part of the Lon- don dockland strategic plan in each of the years 1980 –81 and 1981 –82, and his estimate of the reduction in these figures consequent on his recent moratorium on public sector building.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

The technical appendix to "The Years of Growth

have lost grant in the annual settlement; and as a general rule no deputations on RSG are received in the period immediately before the annual settlement when decisions are being finalised. Representations by individual authorities, whatever form they take, cannot affect their grant entitlements because RSG is distributed according to principles of general application. But Ministers take general account of these representations in reaching decisions on the general principles to be applied.
