HC Deb 13 February 1981 vol 998 cc437-8W
Mr. Hawksley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what amount was included in the 1981–82 rate support grant order settlement for the provision of youth service buildings in the county of Shropshire which were formerly funded centrally.

Mr. King

Provision was made in the 1981–82 capital expenditure allocations for local authorities for £0.8 million to be included in respect of capital expenditure on grant aid for youth service projects by voluntary bodies in England where grant was previously paid direct by the Department of Education and Science. For rate support grant purposes the grant related expenditure of all local authorities included an element for the costing of financing capital expenditure in accordance with the estimated total capital expenditure allocations to each authority. It is not, however, possible to identify the amount of that provision related to capital expenditure on particular services or particular projects in a particular authority.
