21. Mr. Barron

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what sum will be available in 1985–86 for distribution as block grant to local authorities; and how this compares with the current financial year.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

If the House approves shortly the main rate support grant report for 1985–86 and the second supplementary report for 1984–85, block grant in the next financial year will be £8,480 million compared with £8,168 million this year.
