asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish the total cost to his Department of computer time devoted to calculations related to the distribution of rate support grant in 1981–82, 1980–81 and 1979–80.

The computer costs incurred in each financial year related to rate support grant distribution are:

£
1978–79149,151
1979–80149,820
1980–81407,917
*1981–82251,445
* up to 31 October 1981.
It is not possible to attribute these costs precisely to the distribution of grant in a particular year; but most of the costs related to the distribution of grant in one financial year are incurred in the previous year.
