HC Deb 23 July 1985 vol 83 cc462-3W
Mr. Pike

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he proposes to make any changes in the housing factor E7 used in calculating grant-related expenditure allocation.

Sir George Young

Proposals for changes to the assessment of the E7 GRE component for 1986–87 have come forward in this year's round of consultations with the local authorities on GRE development. No decisions on any options have yet been taken. My right hon. Friend will be considering all the possibilities shortly, and will announce his decisions in due course, as part of the RSG settlement for 1986–87.
