HC Deb 04 November 1986 vol 103 cc382-3W
Mr. Holt

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many changes have been made in the contents and method of calculating rate support grant for 1987–88.

Mr. Chope

The Secretary of States proposals for the 1987–88 rate support grant settlement were set out in his consultation paper issued on 3 October, copies of which are in the Library. By comparison with the 1986–87 settlement, substantial increases are proposed in the provision for local authority expenditure, and in the aggregate amount available for grant. A number of changes in the method of distributing grant are also proposed.
