No assessment has been made. We understand that Local Authorities need certainty to plan, and local authority public health grant allocations for 2022/23 will be confirmed shortly. The public health grant for 2022/23 will be protected in real-terms, taking into account the inflation forecast set out by the Office for Budget Responsibility in October 2021.
