§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will publish in the Official Report as much detailed information as may be readily available giving the amount of grants made by his Department to the London borough of Newham, for stated purposes, for each year since May 1979.
§ Mr. King
Exchequer payments to the London borough of Newham are as follows:263W
* Entitlement under the Rate Support Grant Supplementary Report (England) 1982.
† Initial entitlement under the Rate Support Grant Report (England) 1982–83.
‡ Amount paid May-October 1982.
The figures for urban programme are amounts paid during the year, and include amounts in respect of preceeding years. Figures for the other grants in 1979–80 and 1980–81 (other than slum clearance subsidy) are based on audited final claims. Slum clearance subsidy figures for 1979–80 and 1980–81, and all figures for 1981–82 and 1982–83 are estimates, and will be subject to adjustment when audited final claims are received.
