LONDON STANDS TO LOSE MILLIONS OF POUNDS IN FUNDING CLAIMS ALA

London could lose £240 million in government funding because new allocation rules are based on faulty data, the Association of London Authorities said yesterday, the Times reports (p2).

It said the 1991 census, which will be used to work out funding under the new formula, badly underestimates London's population.

The decision to use 1991 spending levels as a benchmark was wrong since that was the year when most London councils faced caps on their expenditure, the association said.

ALA chairman Toby Harris will present the case to John Gummer today.
