asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what percentage of Dundee district council's income its housing revenue account housing support grant accounted for in 1979–80; and what is the corresponding figure for the current year.

Housing support grant paid to Dundee district council in respect of 1979–80 accounted for 37 per cent. of the Secretary of State's estimate of the council's housing revenue account income for that year: the corresponding figure for 1982–83 is 7 per cent.

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what has been the level of Dundee district council's housing support grant in each year since 1979; and if he will express each figure at constant prices.

The information is given as follows and is in cost terms as measured by using the GDP deflators at market prices. The deflator used for 1982–83 is provisional:

Year1981–82 average prices
The figures for the years 1979–80 to 1981–82 include the provision made in both the main orders and subsequent variation orders. The figure for 1982–83 is that prescribed under the main order. Approval by a resolution of the House of Commons of a variation order for that year will reduce the council's housing support grant to £1,693,180 at 1981–82 average prices.
