§ Sir Hector Monro
[holding answer 15 June 1993]: I refer to the reply by my hon. Friend the Minister of State, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, on 14 June at column 396.
1993–94 (See note 1) Local authority Population as at 30 June 1991 Capital allocation Total revenue budget £000 £000 Annandale and Eskdale 37,140 2.516 5,269 North East Fife 69,930 2.384 12,584 Bearsden and Milngavie 41,040 1.275 6,484 Edinburgh City 438,780 35.532 117,528 Banff and Buchan 85,640 1.792 14,033 Nithsdale 57,140 4.244 8,915 Grampian 514,400 49.713 470,672
1. Information on local authorities' capital budgets is not held centrally. The Secretary of State does, however, give his consent annually to local authorities to incur liabilities to meet capital expenditure. This is given in the form of individual capital consent allocations as well as consent to meet capital expenses from capital receipts and revenue and private sector contributions. In addition local authorities eligible for assistance from the European regional development fund will receive in 1993–94 supplementary consent equal to the amount of grant they receive. The figures provided are therefore the total capital allocations including housing for 1993–94 and not the capital budgets.
