<1> AEG currently being paid to authorities. These are final amounts for 1981-82 to 1984-85. Cash values per capita have  

been converted to constant 1988-89 prices using the GDP deflator.                                                         

<2> Per capita figures have been derived by taking total population mid year estimates supplied by the Office of          

Population Censuses and Surveys.

<4> Figures for Metropolitan Districts and Inner and Outer London Boroughs for 1986-87 and following years are not
