Local Government Funding: Cumbria

Volume 455: debated on Monday 15 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will take steps to increase the local government settlement awarded to South Lakeland district council for 2007-08. (114423)

Consultation on the Local Government Finance Settlement closed on Friday 5 January 2007. I will take into account all the representations received during consultation when deciding whether to change my proposals. I have already said though that I do not intend to do so, except in exceptional circumstances.

The House will have a chance to debate the final proposals in due course.
