§ 53. Mr. Stephen Ross
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received following his provisional announcement of block grant for 1984–85, including targets and penalties; and if, in the light of these, he is now prepared to amend his original proposals.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
We have received a large number of representations from individual authorities and the local authority associations about my right hon. Friend's proposals for targets and holdback for 1984–85. We are considering them carefully before taking final decisions about the rate support grant settlement for 1984–85.
