§ 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.
