HC Deb 11 May 1992 vol 207 c36W
17. Mr. Ian Bruce

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the percentage of total council spending to be raised by the community charge this year in Wales.

Mr. David Hunt

Community charges set by Welsh authorities account for around 11.5 per cent. of their provisional budgeted revenue expenditure for 1992–93. The £40 million that I am providing through the community charge reduction scheme will reduce the proportion to around 10 per cent.
