Mr. Hardy

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his present estimate of the ievel of inflation which will apply or be assumed to be likely to apply to local government expenditure in 1991–92.

Mr. Chope

The proposals for local authority spending in 1991–92 announced by my right hon. Friend on 19 July were not based on any particular estimate of inflation, but reflected a judgment about the appropriate level of spending taking account of all relevant factors.
