Representations will have been received across government from a number of groups, but this information is not held centrally.

The Government have provided significant investment in local services, including social care, since taking office. The total government grant has increased by 39 per cent in real terms since 1997.

We are working with local government to identify future pressures on local authorities and the ways in which they can be mitigated as part of the Comprehensive Spending Review 2007.
