To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the ratio of payment from central funds to the personal community charge in each local authority in England.
[holding answer 11 June 1990]: The available information for 1990–91 is given in the table. The ratio of central funds to community charge income has been calculated for individual local authority areas since some payments from central funds are made to charging authorities on behalf of both charging and precepting authorities in the area. Complete information for all authority areas will not be available until all authorities' budget returns for 1990–91 have been made to my Department.
