HC Deb 27 April 1983 vol 41 c329W
32. Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what recent representations he has received concerning the level of rate support grants to rural areas.

Mr. Giles Shaw

I receive a large number of representations from individual authorities about rate support grant. A proportion of these are from authorities in rural areas and refer to the problems of those areas in providing their services.
