To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what advice he provides county councils on the supply of disaggregated information about the cost of provision of the local government services to district councils.

[holding answer 6 March 1992]: Each year the Department of the Environment publishes a document "Standard Spending Assessment Handbook" which sets out underlying information about the service elements of standard spending assessments for each English local authority. A copy is sent to each authority and copies of the 1990–91 and 1991–92 editions are available in the House Library. In addition, every local authority is obliged to publish its accounts annually.
