§ Mr. Pawsey
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why the rate support grant block grant to Warwickshire for 1983–84 has been reduced by £200,000 compared to 1982–83.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
The latest estimate of the block grant entitlement for Warwickshire is £62.365 million. That is £25,000 more than the latest estimate for 1982–83. Grant entitlements in both years are, however, still subject to change in the light of Warwickshire's outturn expenditure and changes in the variable items of grant.
