HC Deb 28 February 1990 vol 168 c250W
26. Mr. Malcolm Bruce

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has received from rural areas regarding the Government's revenue support grant for 1990–91.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

Six district councils in predominantly rural areas have made general representations about the overall level of their revenue support grant for 1990–91. A number of other authorities, some of them in rural areas, have as is usual raised detailed points, particularly in relation to loan charges and non-domestic rate income, on technical matters relating to the calculation of RSG.
