§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what assumptions he is making in fixing the block grant about the level of pay settlements for firemen in the current and the next two financial years.
§ Mr. King
The rate support grant report (England) 1982–83 sets out the framework against which my right hon. Friend decided the level of relevant expenditure to be taken into account for grant purposes in the current year. The reports for 1983–84 and 1984–85 will contain similar information for those years.
