Further allocations will be made in 1995-96 to shadow authorities when they are elected; to all eligible authorities in the light of revised estimates to be submitted at the end of September, especially in respect of redundancy and staff compensation costs and to some authorities who are being asked to look again at certain expenditures they are proposing to incur, especially on accommodation.
Authorities for whom reorganisation orders are made under Section 17 of the Local Government Act 1992 during the course of 1995-96 may also qualify under the scheme.
