MINISTER DEFENDS CCT AS BEING ABOUT VALUE NOT JUST MONEY

Local government minister David Curry today defended CCT as being about value and not just money.

Speaking at the Institute of Revenues, Rating and Valuation conference in Torquay, Mr Curry said: 'We are not going to impose a CCT regime that makes it harder to operate good services. The regime must certainly offer authorities the flexibility to develop services in a way which meets their needs.'

Mr Curry said discussions with local authority associations about finance services were already underway. Firm proposals could be expected in July 1994, with all local authorities having the opportunity to comment.

He continued: 'The definition will include all work going to make up what we would recognise as local authority finance services, not just those in the finance or treasurer's department.'

Mr Curry said councils will decide which work to market test to meet statutory requirements.
