Budget estimates for specific and special grants inside aggregate external finance in 2007-08 are not yet available.
Figures exclude grants outside aggregate external finance (i.e. where funding is not for the 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 the local authority's housing management responsibilities and those grant programmes (such as European funding) where the authority is simply one of the recipients of funding paid towards an area.
