Question

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what the per capita funding was to each (a) combined and (b) local authority fire authority; and whether such funding to local authorities is provided as a discrete budget.

Answer (Mr Marcus Jones)

Core Spending Power is the Government’s preferred measure of local authority income as it is a broader measure of the resources available to a local authority including income that can be raised locally. This data can be found at:

The Department does not publish core spending power on a per capita basis but does publish core spending power per dwelling, which is available at the same link.
