HC Deb 01 February 1995 vol 253 c687W
Mr. Robert Ainsworth

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if income from parking charges made by local authorities is taken into account when calculating standard spending assessment settlements.

Mr. Robert B. Jones

The income of local authorities from car parking is taken into account in determining the total of standard spending assessments. Income of this kind is also taken into account in the analyses on which the SSA formula for 'all other services' is based. But the standard spending assessment of an individual authority does not take specific account of the income from car parking of that authority.
