The Government will consider the Association of Metropolitan Fire and Rescue Authorities' submission on "the Potential Impact of the 2013-15 Finance Settlement".

On 17 July 2012 the Government published the Technical Consultation on Business Rates Retention detailing proposals for local authority funding from 2013-14. All representations received during the consultation period will be considered before final decisions are made. Provisional fire and rescue authority funding baselines will be announced at the usual time-in late November or early December this year.
