I have written with the Chair of London Councils to the Secretary of State for Health to raise our joint concerns about the interim recommendations on the public health formula from the Advisory Committee on Resource Allocation (ACRA). I have also assisted London Councils in a more detailed response to the consultation on ACRA's interim recommendations. I would be happy to share the letter with you should you wish to have a copy.
