HC Deb 14 July 1997 vol 298 c9W
Ms Kelly

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will estimate the money Bolton will receive from the release of local authority capital receipts. [7930]

Mr. Raynsford

The Government provided figures illustrating alternative methods of distributing additional Supplementary Credit Approvals to individual local authorities in a table accompanying the consultation paper on proposals for implementing the capital receipts initiative in England. That paper was issued on 19 July and copies have been deposited in the Library of the House. Final allocations to individual authorities, however, will not be available until the consultation period has ended and we have given careful consideration to the comments received.
