To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the total Government grant per head of population for each shire county for 1990–91.

[holding answer 1 March 1990]: Revenue support grant will not be paid directly to shire counties in 1990–91. The table shows the average revenue support grant after transitional adjustments plus special grant for low rateable value areas, per adult, to be paid to district councils in the area of each shire county.Each area will receive £292·51 per adult in business rate income. The Government will also pay specific grants to authorities in the area of each shire county, but I have no estimates of the amounts.
