HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 c694W
Mr. Gareth Wardell

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish in the Official Report for (a) Wales and (b) each local authority in Wales, the change in real terms of the rate support grant settlement for 1986–87, compared to the 1979–80 assessment.

Mr. Mark Robinson

New rate support grant arrangements were introduced in 1981–82 and valid comparisons cannot be drawn between the settlements made before and after the change.
