HC Deb 08 July 1981 vol 8 c160W
25. Mr. Newens

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has yet reached any conclusions about changes required in the formula for determining rate support grant in order to redress the adverse effects upon particular areas of the formula used in the last rate support grant settlement.

Mr. King

We are discussing with the local authority associations in the grants working group possible changes in rate support grant distribution for 1982–83. I expect the group to make its report to the consultative council on local government finance in September.
