Mr. Tipping

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the level of revenue support grant per inhabitant for(a) Ashfield, (b) Bassetlaw, (c) Broxtowe, (d) Gedling, (e) Mansfield, (f) Newark and Sherwood, (g) Nottingham, (h) Rushcliffe, (i) Westminster, (j) Wandsworth and (k) the City of London for 1992–93 and 1993–94.

Mr. Robin Squire

The level of revenue support grant per head of resident population for the authorities requested is given in the table:

Local authority Revenue Support Grant per head 1992–93 £ Revenue Support Grant per head 1993–94 £
Ashfield 267.19 16.98
Bassetlaw 285.41 31.14
Broxtowe 264.73 15.45
Gedling 275.29 19.92
Mansfield 279.49 26.67
Newark and Sherwood 286.69 37.40
Nottingham 329.40 83.43
Rushcliffe 257.90 12.22
Westminster 958.85 802.79
Wandsworth 714.59 619.18
City of London 10,771.14 11,225.31

The figures for the two years are not comparable since revenue support grant for the year 1993–94 is to be paid direct to each billing and major precepting authority, whereas in 1992–93 it was paid into the collection fund administered by the charging authority on behalf of all tiers of authority in the area.
