Due to changes in the finance and function of local government, there has been no consistent measure of central government funding since 2010. The Department’s preferred measure of local government funding is Core Spending Power. Core Spending Power is comparable over the period 2015-16 to 2019-20 and published on the Department's website: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/core-spending-power-final-local-government-finance-settlement-2019-to-2020.
