§ 57. Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can state the amount of money now paid annually for social services from the Exchequer and from the rates, respectively; and can he also give the figures for the year preceding the War?
The House of Commons Return (No. 16 of 1928) shows the amount provided from the Exchequer, local rates and other sources on all the important 1127 public social services for the latest year for which figures are available and also for certain years before the War.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Does my hon. Friend realise the difficulties of going through all these books before one gets an answer?
No, Sir, there is a book available, No. 16 of 1928, and if my hon. Friend finds any difficulty I shall be glad to do my best to assist him.
