HC Deb 23 April 1986 vol 96 c169W
40. Mr. Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the latest estimate of the total amount of money held by local authorities in capital receipts.

Mrs. Rumbold

I refer the hon. Member to my reply of 6 February to the hon. Member for Portsmouth, South (Mr. Hancock) at column 249. It will shortly be possible to revise the estimate I gave then in the light of information currently being collected from local authorities on their accumulated capital receipts.
