HC Deb 25 May 1995 vol 260 c788W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the level of revenue support grant per head in(a) Pendle, (b) Ribble valley, (c) the City of Westminster, (d) Wandsworth and (e) the City of London for 1994–95 and 1995–96. [26565]

Mr. Curry

The revenue support grant per head of these authorities is shown in the first row of figures in each of the tables. The tables also show the revenue support grant per head of the other types of authority which serve these areas, since the division of responsibilities for services between types of authorities is different in Lancashire, inner London and the City of London. In particular, in Pendle and Ribble valley, Lancashire county council provides major services which, in London, are provided by the borough and city authorities.

There were a further 52,679 supported units provided for non-elderly vulnerable residents in England through the Housing Corporation in 1994–95. The Housing Corporation supported a total of 317 housing associations providing care and support to their tenants.
