§ Mr. Dewar
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish tables for the financing of local authority expenditure in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom, in a form comparable to table 5.13 of Cm 1520, but analysing the financing of local authority expenditure as defined in table 5.6 rather than the financing of local authority expenditure on a national accounts basis.
§ Mr. Mellor
The table shows the financing of local authority expenditure as defined in table 5.6 of the "Statistical Supplement to the 1990 Autumn Statement" —Cm 1520—for the United Kingdom.409W
The footnotes in table 5.13 of Cm 1520 still apply except that "other grants" excludes the repayment of VAT and "other receipts" excludes the imputed income from non-trading capital.
Data are not held in a form which allows a disaggregation of the above table by territory, except at disproportionate cost.
