Population Projections

Volume 451: debated on Monday 30 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether a race equality impact assessment was undertaken on the decision to use current methodology for population projections in the local government funding system. (94221)

No. I consulted widely on the implementation of multi year settlements for local government. This consultation included the option, which was largely supported and subsequently adopted, to use sub-national population projections instead of the mid-year population estimates as the main driver of population in the local government funding distribution system.
