Block grant could be reduced and local authorities given more specific grants, Labour's environment spokesman Frank Dobson suggested at the IRRV conference today.

Mr Dobson said he doubted whether it was possible for an 'overarching formula' for grant distribution to deal fairly with all local authorities.

He was considering the alternative of having block grant for basic services, supplemented by specific grants for areas such as economic development. He invited comments on this idea.
