To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what the value was of the Government's local government financial settlement for the (a) East Devon district council and (b) Devon county council in each year from 1978–79 to 2001–02; and what the percentage increase was on the previous year.

Information on allocations to individual authorities in years before 1990 is no longer held centrally. The table gives figures for Standard Spending Assessments (SSA) for the two authorities from 1990–91 to 2001–02, and the percentage increase in each year after adjusting for changes in function or funding responsibilities. Local government restructuring applied to Devon from 1998–99 so it is not possible to calculate a meaningful increase for the county in that year.
