HC Deb 25 February 1988 vol 128 c268W
Ms. Harman

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how much of the extra 2.98p offered by him to the London borough of Southwark in increased rate limitation for 1988–89 was (a) in respect of storm damage,(b) in respect of block grant losses, and (c) to create a working balance.

Mr. Chope

My right hon. Friend's offer to the London borough of Southwark of a maximum rate of 101p—an extra 2.98p over the maximum he had proposed earlier — was made in the light of all the borough's circumstances which were known to him, and he has now prescribed a maximum of that level.
