asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is now in a position to state what grants he proposes to make to individual local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humberside Region in 1977–78 in respect of the resources element of rate support grant; and how these compare with the corresponding figures for 1976–77.
The initial distributions of the resources element of the rate support grant for the Yorkshire and Humberside Region for 1977–78 compared with that for 1976–77 are as follows. The allocations are provisional and will be subject to review during the grant year as more up-to-date information becomes available.

|* The considerable decrease in resources grant has resulted from the additional rateable value brought into the district by the opening of an opencast coal mine.|
