For the years 1970–71 to 1973–74, these figures include the payments made to the former Derby county borough whose major functions were transferred to the county council in the local government re-organisation in 1974. They include both the needs and resources elements of RSG which were payable to these authorities at that time. Since 1974–75, county councils have received only the needs element direct.
