To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement about the profile of 1990–91 revenue support grant payments to Scottish local authorities.

Having considered the case submitted by the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities on 9 April and in particular the points they put to me about the effect of the introduction of the community charge transitional relief scheme on their billing arrangements, I have decided that the profile of revenue support grant payments for 1990–91 should be advanced so that authorities receive 25·2 per cent. of their total entitlement to grant by the end of May.
