HC Deb 01 December 1993 vol 233 c546W
35. Mr. Austin-Walker

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will review the provision made in calculating standard spending assessments and grant distribution to London authorities to reflect expenditure on concessionary fare schemes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Curry

As part of the review of standard spending assessments for 1994–95 we have considered carefully the case for including specific provision for spending on concessionary fares in London. My right hon. Friend will announce his proposals for SSAs shortly.
