asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if the Government will give financial assistance to Dundee district council should it take over the running of Dundee crematorium from Dundonian Ltd.; and, if so, how much assistance will be given.

Dundee district council has not approached me with any plans to take over the running of Dundee crematorium. There is no provision for Government assistance to local authorities specifically for crematoria. Any capital expenditure would have to be found within the council's block allocation for general services. Current expenditure would be relevant expenditure for the purposes of rate support grant.
