§ Ms Armstrong
On 14 July I invited authorities that reorganised on 1 April 1998 to submit estimates of the amount of expenditure they expect to incur on transitional costs of reorganisation in 2000–01. On the basis of the information provided by authorities, I have decided the revised maximum amounts that it would be appropriate to allocate towards such costs in 2000–01.
The amounts are as follows:
£000 Authority Amount 12000–01 1998 Reorganisations West Berkshire Council 3,740 Reading Borough Council 3,628 Slough Borough Council 1,894 Wokingham District Council 2,237 County of Hertfordshire District Council 1,711 Worcestershire County Council 4,471 Plymouth City Council 3,515 Torbay Borough Council 2,910 Thurrock Borough Council 3,213 Nottingham City Council 1,095 Halton Borough Council 3,759 Telford and Wrekin District Council 670 Medway Borough Council 2,085 Peterborough City Council 472 Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council 765 Blackpool Borough Council 980 Total 37,145 1 Maximum amounts: £000s rounded
