HC Deb 20 January 1986 vol 90 c22W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will give an assurance that targets for local authority spending in Wales will not be re-introduced in 1987–88.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

I have no plans at present to re-introduce targets in 1987–88. Decisions about the rate support grant mechanisms for that year will be taken towards the end of the year.
