§ Dr. Lynne Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will bring forward proposals to base local authority debt charge standard spending assessments on 1990–91 adjusted credit ceilings; and if he will make a statement on the discrepancies between the current notional debt figure and actual debt charge spending.
§ Mr. Baldry
We are at present considering the various representations which have been received in the course of the review of SSAs, including those for changes to the capital financing SSA, which were also discussed with the local authority associations.
The Secretary of State will announce his proposals for the distribution of revenue support grant for 1994–95 shortly. The announcement will include any proposals for 44W the calculation of the capital financial element of SSAs for 1994–95. There will follow, as in previous years, a period of consultation.
