§ 70. Mr. Maurice Macmillan
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether, in view of the Government's policy not to increase rate support grants, he will take special measures to ensure that any road improvements undertaken by Farnham Urban District 53W Council, consequent upon the proposed development within their boundaries of 510 houses and five shops by Aldershot Borough Council, do not propose any additional cost, by way of capital or current expenditure, on the ratepayers of Farnham urban district.
§ Mr. Skeffington
No, the Government's decision has no direct bearing on this matter. The urban district council do not qualify for either the needs element or the resources element of the rate support grant and the domestic element is not affected.
