asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, following the unanimous decision of Dundee district council to approach him about the expenditure guidelines and rate fund contribution to the housing account allocated to the city, he will now meet a delegation from that council to discuss the allocations.

No. In line with past procedure, my right hon. Friend and I hold discussions on current expenditure guidelines with the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities, not individual councils. On the provisional rate fund contributions to the housing revenue account my right hon. Friend has made clear his wish that representations from individual authorities should be made at official level. Such a meeting was offered to Dundee district council, but I understand that the council has, at least for the time being, declined the offer.
