Mr. Robert Ainsworth
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the representations he has received from professional lobby organisations on behalf of local authorities concerning their standard spending assessment allocation.
§ Mr. Baldry
We receive numerous representations on standard spending assessments from the local authority associations, trades unions, chambers of commerce and other professional bodies. My right hon. Friend considered carefully all of the representations made to him on standard spending assessments before taking final decisions on the revenue support grant settlement for 1994–95.
