HC Deb 08 December 1931 vol 260 cc1696-7

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will cause to be prepared figures of national income and outgo in respect of the year 1930–31, and an estimate in respect of the current year, on similar lines to those given in Parliamentary Paper No. 93, of Session 1909?


The preparation of a Return on the lines suggested would involve more labour and expense than I could regard as justified by the results. The information desired in respect of the year 1930–31 can be obtained from the Finance Accounts, 1930, already published (House of Commons Paper 106/1931), and from the Public Departments: Gross and Net Cost Return, which will be available early in the new year.
