Written answers (Question to Environment)

General purpose grants are my Department's contribution towards meeting the cost to local authorities of providing a reasonable level of services to their customers.

The information requested is set out in the tables below which detail the total general purpose grant allocations and final general purpose grant payments from the Local Government Fund for all local authorities in each county. The allocations for 2010 and 2011 reflect income from pension related deductions which was collected and retained by local authorities.
