HC Deb 03 December 1984 vol 69 cc68-9W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in setting the provisional expenditure targets for 1985–86, he had regard to the increase in target over that set for each local authority in 1984–85 and the individual circumstances of each local authority.

Mr. Waldegrave

The provisional targets for 1985–86 were framed by reference to principles applicable to all local authorities. The principles used were described in the material placed in the Library on 24 July.
