HC Deb 22 October 1987 vol 120 cc869-70W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what central Government grants owed to the former Greater London council and the Inner London education authority are still outstanding.

Mr. Chope

A wide variety of Exchequer grants were payable to the Greater London council and are payable to the Inner London education authority. In the process of closing the GLC's accounts the London residuary body has estimated the amounts of grants due. In some cases these entitlements and arrangements for payment are the subject of discussion between the LRB and the respective Government Departments. In others, outstanding

development of Children's Play. The council will be establishing a separate management committee to include representatives from the local authority associations and relevant national organisations concerned with children's play, to oversee this work.
