HC Deb 19 May 1982 vol 24 c122W
Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has received the estimated repair bills from district councils as a consequence of the winter's severe weather which caused broken pipes, flooding and other damage to council homes; and if he will list individually such estimated cost of the councils.

Mr. Allan Stewart

[pursuant to his reply, 14 May, c. 333]: My right hon. Friend has not yet received any formal claims from district councils in response to Scottish Office finance circular No. 4/1982, issued on 22 February, which describes the Government's scheme of financial assistance to local authorities which incurred exceptional expenditure as a result of the severe winter weather.
