Local Government Finance: Dorset

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government which grants were awarded to councils in (a) Poole, (b) Bournemouth and (c) Dorset in addition to their local government financial settlement in each of the last five years; and what the value was of each award. (126126)

Information on grants awarded to Poole UA, Bournemouth UA and Dorset CC in addition to their local government financial settlement in each of the last five years has been made available in a table which has been placed in the Library of the House.

The figures exclude grants outside AEF (i.e. where funding is not for an authority’s core services, but is passed to a third party; for example, as in the case of mandatory student awards), capital grants, funding for local authorities’ housing management responsibilities and those grant programmes (such as European funding) where authorities are simply one of the recipients of funding paid towards an area.
