asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish in the Official Report the percentage change in 1980–81 for each local authority in Scotland of (a) the rate poundage and (b) the amount of rate support grant.

Percentage changes in regional, district and general rate pound-ages between 1979–80 and 1980–81 are given in the table below.Rate support grant for both years, as currently prescribed, may be increased in consideration of increases in costs affecting local authority expenditure. Until the amounts of any increases are determined and distributed it is not possible to establish the amount of rate support grant for each authority for either year or to measure the change in 1980–81.
