asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the options he had before him for changes in grant-related expenditures for 1985–86; and what are his reasons for accepting or rejecting those options as the case may be.

This information is contained in a note prepared by my Department entitled "1985/86 Rate Support Grant Settlement: Proposals for changes in the method of determining grant-related expenditure assessments". This note is based on a paper recently discussed in the grants working group of the Consultation Council on Local Government Finance. I have today placed copies of the note in the Library.
