§ Mrs. Anne Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many hours officials at his Department are expected to spend in reviewing the method of calculation of standard spending assessments; and what staff levels will be involved.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
The Department is at present planning to devote about 10 man years to work on the SSA review in this financial year. Officials in other Government Departments will also be involved. The amount of work will depend, in part, on the representations made to us by local authorities and others.
