HC Deb 05 December 1989 vol 163 cc119-20W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will take steps to ensure that local authority districts in which a large part of the income comes from tourism are not penalised for this in the revenue support grant calculations for 1990–91.

Mr. Chope

In the proposals for revenue support grant for 1990–91, no account is taken of income from tourism in calculating individual authorities' standard spending assessments.
