The formula for calculation of the average rate for households is as follows: Each year, district councils' estimated net expenditure is reduced by anticipated general grant payments and any balance that councils have indicated they wish to apply, to determine the net amount to be raised from district rates. This figure is divided by the total penny product (the income from one penny in the rates) to give the average non-domestic rate. The average non-domestic rate is then multiplied by the Northern Ireland growth factor to determine the average domestic rate. The average domestic rate for 2006-2007 is 157.33 pence
The regional domestic rate is a single rate applied uniformally across Northern Ireland. It is determined by dividing the domestic rate revenue required in the Budget by the domestic tax base, currently defined in rental values.
Paul Goggins: All benefits payable on redundancy terms which apply to staff in the Northern Ireland Office who are members of the Home Civil Service are determined under the Civil Service Compensation Scheme.

You recently asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland a Parliamentary Question about when the major planned roadworks on the A2 between Limavady and Coleraine will (a) begin and (b) be concluded. As this issue falls within my responsibility as Acting Chief Executive of Roads Service, I have been asked to reply.
It is assumed that you are referring to the planned improvements for the A37, the main route between Limavady and Coleraine.
Roads Service plans to carry out a major improvement scheme to provide a 2.3 kilometre long climbing lane to improve overtaking opportunities for Coleraine-bound traffic on the A37 west of Keady mountain.
It was expected to commence construction work on this scheme during this financial year, however this has had to be deferred because of land acquisition difficulties. We are hopeful that construction will commence in 2007/2008.
We are mindful of the elevation of the site and propose to programme the works to commence in the spring and be completed by the autumn to avoid the need to divert traffic onto other less suitable mountain roads during winter conditions.
