§ Mr. Rooney
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what the total level of Government support to North Yorkshire county council was in 1990–91, and in 1991–92; and what is the projected figure for 1992–93.
§ Mr. Key
[holding answer 26 February 1992]: The bulk of North Yorkshire's revenue finance is derived from precepts on collection funds administered by the district councils within the county. The council, however, receives certain specific grants from the Government which are paid directly into its own general fund. Those inside aggregate external finance were estimated to be £33409 million in 1990–91 and £36823 million in 1991–92. Estimates for specific grants for 1992–93 are not available as the relevant returns have not yet been received by the Department. In 1992–93, North Yorkshire will also receive an additional grant towards the teachers' pay award of £0.746 million.
