My Department does not have information about salaries for police and fire services.

Under the rate support grant settlement 1973–74, 60 per cent. of the total estimated relevant expenditure of local authorities in England and Wales was met by grant. The rate support grant is a general grant in aid of rate fund ser-vices. It is not allocated to specific services and it is, therefore, not possible to say what amount is chargeable to rates in each county for specific services.
