§ 16. Mr. Langford-Holt
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government by what percentage over the last four years total expenditure, including expenditure on education, by county councils has increased.
§ The Minister of Housing and Local Government (Mr. Duncan Sandys)
About 30 per cent.
§ Mr. Langford-Holt
Is my right hon. Friend aware that it is an extremely good thing that Her Majesty's Government's expenditure has not gone up by the same percentage?
§ Mr. Lindgren
Can the Minister say what percentage of that increase is due to the increased cost of work performed and what percentage to additional works carried out?
