HC Deb 21 March 1923 vol 161 c2558

asked the Prime Minister if he will consider the practicability of the presentation to the House of a statement showing the projected expenditure for the year from the rates at the time the Budget is introduced?


Following the practice in recent Financial Statements, an estimate of the total rates collected by local authorities in the year 1922–23 will be given in the Financial Statement for 1923–24. It is not, however, practicable to obtain particulars of the estimated expenditure by local authorities in any year in time for a table to be included in the Financial Statement relating to the same year.
